Red face My city's newspaper did a story on a 9-year-old vegan :)

Here's the link: http://theadvocate.com/features/peop...year-old-vegan

Obviously it's not 100% perfect, but how great is it that the paper did a nice story on this v. cool kid?

In the BR Vegan Facebook page, his mom said that the reporters tried some of the food and weren't expecting for it to taste so good.

P.S. I did not read the comments, but I recommend that you do not read the comments...

Awww, that's lovely. It's so inspiring to see so many young people going vegan.

Great story. I would read the comments, in only that one person made a very lame comment, and other people pounced on the commentor.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

HAH! The comments I read were great!
What a wonderful article! And from Lousiana -- no wonder the test I took about where I'd like to live had it at no. 4! That surprised me.

Oh my gosh, you guys are right, the comments are heartwarming! :blush: I read The Advocate every day, and the comments are often hateful - but what a nice surprise!!
