What do we as parents do when our plant-based kids are faced with non-vegan foods? Vibeka…this is a doozy! There are so many ways to deal with our kids’ choices to eat animal products when they are with friends or other family members. It all comes down to your family values with regards to health, animal rights and also your parenting style. The short answer is as long as you’re calm, cool and respectful, there really is no wrong answer, only ones that are more suited for your unique situation. How I may handle my plant-based kids may be completely different from everyone else in the Healthy Plant-Based Families Facebook group!
I really had to think hard on this one and I put together three answers for today. To all the listeners, these answers are not intended to limit you to what I talk about today. They are meant to inspire you to think deeply about how you would handle your plant-based kids and certainly have a conversation around the topic with any other parents or guardians your kids may have. The age of your kids may come into effect here and you may also find that your own personal reaction to this situation will evolve over time. So which are you…Ron, Harry or Hermione?
