AMI Puts Meatless Monday Into Focus

Tue, 10 Aug 2010 18:12:25 CDT

AMI Puts Meatless Monday Into Focus American Meat Institute Senior Vice President of Public Affairs Janet Riley says people who promote Meatless Monday should worry more about promoting a Vegetable Tuesday or a Whole Grains Wednesday. Riley told NPR radio this week that the Meatless Monday campaign suggests people are over-consuming meat - which they are not. But they are under-consuming vegetables, fruits and whole grains - and dramatically over-consuming discretionary fats and sugars.


Riley told NPR radio that the Meatless Monday campaign - sponsored by Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future - is not about health because meat is the one food group that is consumed in the proper quantity according to federal consumption data. U.S. Dietary Guidelines recommend five to seven ounces from the meat and beans group per day. Men consume 6.9-ounces of meat per day and women consume 4.4-ounces of meat.
