Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Raising Vegan Kids?

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly the American Dietetic Association), “appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases.

Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life-cycle including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood and adolescence and for athletes.”

However, there are still a lot of myths surrounding vegan diets that are preventing parents from making the decision to raise their kids vegan. Ruby Roth, author of the children's book Why We Don't Eat Animals, explains why misinformation about plant-based diets is confusing parents and leading them into not adopting a plant-based for themselves and their kids.

The Bible tells us that God’s ideal diet for us, prescribed in Genesis, is a plant-based diet. After all, it’s healthy, it instills and encourages compassion towards God’s animals and helps us be good stewards of Creation. It’s a win-win choice of diet!
