I had a very brilliant idea I am going to do a study, to see which food looks more appetizing to youngsters (vegan or omni for the choices). I am going to gather several photo's of different foods, with a different version of the food for each lifestyle. Then, I am going to display them on powerpoint, and do the test. Not only is it going to be fun for muah, hopefully it will open up my 4 yr old sisters eyes to the vegan world. She is an omni, but she loves to sit down and have a great meal with me, her favorite being scrambled tofu, with a side of toast, mixed veggies, and a fruit. Wish me luck!
that's a really good idea! could prove interesting.. i remember being in the grocery store with my mom, and over the meat section they had this really nasty looking cut of something or other, and i asked my mom, "is that a very un-appetizing picture, or am i just biased?" she looked at it, kind of crinkled her face up, and was like, "err, no, it's not you. that's gross." that was a happy moment
I think it would also make an interesting study to use actual foods, though I would never endorse actually buying meaty foods. I think that the 3-D aspect and the smell aspect would be good for the veg*n side.
