We are working on family understanding, which takes time.I think there can be something in-between: I am feeding my baby girl only vegan food and am asking others only to feed her vegan food (in daycare, at grandparents) as long as she is still a baby and is being fed by adults.Keep up the good work and we cannot wait for your next cookbook! We constantly talk to her about what is healthy and what is not.
I had the exact same approach in mind when my daughter was born.
Had the same conversation with my omni hubby and we agreed to the exact same thing. Then I started doing more research on the harmfulness of meat and dairy. And that during family gatherings I would have to feed it to her. If I’m eating a healthy vegan diet, take so much care to avoid chemicas and the toxic products that are meat and dairy, then my daughter shall also.
You rock Angela, you inspired me to become plant based and to keep going at it with your wonderful cookbook and beautiful blog posts.
I can NOT wait for OSG2 :) I think that that’s a great approach to take.
they eat what is served and I am okay with that and will also let them come to their own conclusion.
Thank you for publishing my stance exactly and I really hope you dont get any flack from anyone, Also. I just tell people I am plant-based as I continue to have local honey as I believe it helps with my severe seasonal allergies.It’s a belief system not a diet, which is to avoid any and all exploitation of animals through diet, entertainment and clothing. Just thought I would clarify, it is something that does kind of bug most strict vegans because it only hurts the cause unfortunately when people water down the meaning.I understand the point being made here for those who define themselves as vegan.I am really pleased that my mum let it be my own decision, as it feels like something that is mine and wasn’t fobbed off on me. Thank you for posting this article, it has reaffirmed the decision I made for my children as well.I am the only Vegan in my household and I had at one point tried to get my daughters on the same, however, they started to complain and said that they really like meat and wanted it and cheese back in their diet.Seriously, what were the chances of this happening?! Best wishes to you and your little one, Halina Haha. We’re not naive and know as she grows older she will be curious when she goes to have sleepovers and her friends eat pepperoni pizza or burgers.
