School lunches don’t exactly have the best reputation, and parents generally accept that their kids won’t be eating a five-star meal in the school caf. But when Kourtney Kardashian’s children are involved, it’s a different story.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star just opened up in a recent post on her lifestyle blog Poosh about why she felt she needed to speak up about the food that was being served at her children’s school.
Being a mom to three kids—Mason, 9, Penelope, 7, and Reign, 4—Kourtney said it was “unsettling” to see the kind of meals and snacks that were being served at her kids’ schools. She specifically called out processed foods and produce that wasn’t fresh or organic.
“As moms, it’s in our power to raise some awareness and rally for healthier options,” she wrote. “I wasn’t satisfied with the food being served at my kids’ school, so I made sure that the principal knew my concerns.”
It may come as no surprise that Kourtney isn’t a fan of standard school lunches, given how notoriously healthy she eats. Kourtney and her kids follow a gluten- and dairy-free diet, and she regularly preaches about the importance of eating organic and clean.
Watch this for more of Kourtney’s healthy lifestyle tips:
Kourtney said she’s “continued to offer my two cents on everything from the type of milk they serve to their use of single-use plastic.” And while Kourtney acknowledged that she probably seems “annoying” to the school powers that be, she’s nonetheless standing her ground. “In the long run, I’m doing it for my children and their futures,” she wrote.
Kourtney also encouraged other parents to try to be more eco-conscious and to stand up for what they believe in, noting that people don’t need to “donate large sums of money” or start a foundation in order to spark change.
“I’ve found that simply using my voice to stand up for small changes that add up to big impacts is so effective at not only creating change, but setting an example for my children,” she said. “I may not be the loudest or the most aggressive, but I’ve never been one to stand by and watch something I disagree with unfold.” Kudos, Kourt!
