NEW YORK (AP) - New York City’s mayor says 15 public schools in Brooklyn will forgo meat on their Monday menus starting this spring.

Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH’-zee-oh) says he also will be instituting the “Meatless Mondays” policy at Gracie Mansion, the mayor’s residence. De Blasio made the announcement on Monday during a visit to P.S. 1 - one of five schools in the city serving vegetarian meals every day of the week.

The mayor says he spoke with a number of students at the school and was surprised to learn their favorite vegetable was broccoli after polling the students.
