Talk- Vegan families + bringing up vegan Children


A talk, discussion on Vegan families + bringing up vegan Children

On our 4th talk event at 10 Cable St, we will be focusing on the topic of bringing children up as vegans.

As a parent trying to bring up a child as a vegan, clashes with family, friends and even strangers are sadly inevitable.
“Are you sure they are getting enough nutrition?”, “What about calcium?”, “You shouldn't force your beliefs on your kids.” And so it goes on…

This event is a supportive space to share our stories, ask questions, learn from each other and get expert advice from nutritionist about what we need to consider when raising our children vegan.
