Forget Meatless Mondays. Every day is meatless at an elementary school cafeteria that's gone completely vegetarian.

New York City's Public School 244 started serving vegetarian lunches three days a week, and went to five days a week after finding students gravitated toward those options, The Associated Press reported.

The school is thought to be one of the first meat-free elementary schools in the country, according to NBC News.

Among the menu items offered: tofu wraps, veggie chili, braised black beans and plantains, quesadillas, falafel, pizza and roasted potatoes.

Breakfast options include whole-grain banana bread.

The Queens school has 400 students in pre-kindergarten through third grade.
