6 Ways to Raise a Child Who Doesn't Eat Animals



Quote:
My son Noah and I live a vegan lifestyle. That's different from following a vegan diet -- although both are great! In fact, whatever you do that helps the environment, animals, humans or the earth is pretty awesome. For us, veganism extends past the plant-based food on our plate.

Last year I wrote an article for xoJane about Noah choosing to become vegan on his own when he was five years old. I shared his passionate decision to switch from being vegetarian to vegan when he learned the truth about the dairy and egg industries.

He didn't want to eat animals or contribute to their suffering. Noah continues to be my inspiration to stick with the diet part of veganism even if it's challenging. We recently celebrated our four-year vegan anniversary! We do our best to be kind and compassionate to all creatures, both human and non-human. We don't participate in activities that exploit or oppress another species like the zoo, circus or marine parks. We don't wear fur, leather, or wool. But still the most common questions I receive surrounding veganism are food based. So although ethical veganism is all encompassing, this article is about food choices. Here are a few things I have learned from raising a child that does not eat meat, fish, dairy, eggs or anything containing animal ingredients.

A great post about raising compassionate kiddos.
