Raising vegan kids
As more people switch to a plant-based diet, more parents are raising their children vegan.
There are a number of benefits to raising vegan children besides a healthy diet. A plant-based diet can teach your child compassion from an early age and help them have a better understanding of our food system.
What’s more, it’s a great opportunity to allow your young ones to get creative at meal times by helping prepare meals.
Whatever the reasons may be, introducing more whole food plant-based foods into your child’s life is sure to give them the best start.
