Vegan Kids

Everyone is born vegan

The food system in our society has been co-opted by a profit-motivated industry that has purposely made processed food addictive (Read Salt, Sugar, Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us by Michael Moss) and cheap. School food has gotten a bad rap, but it’s no worse, and in many cases, it is better than what children may be eating outside of school. Despite regulations intended to make school food healthier, the offerings at many schools still mimic processed fast food (with lower calories, sodium, and fat) and since juice can count as a fruit, many children are not eating fruits or vegetables at school… or at home. LiveVegan is here to help you raise healthy vegan kids.
