It's time for another #babybumtricks feature from the feature comp @earthyandy and I are doing! (TO ENTER: do a post tagging @earthyandy @ellenfisher and #babybumtricks In the caption and share your tips/tricks or vegan recipes to help kids be as excited about 🍌fruits and 🌿veggies as Elvis is excited in this photo! I.E. JUMPING FOR JOY!) @sierrasoul84 has some amazing encouragement: "My littles are 11,9,7,and 5 and we have JUST now begun to encourage our kids to eat vegan. We were vegetarian for longer, never understanding the full truth about the dairy and egg industry. 🌞🌻But, it's never to late to start caring. It's never to late to grasp on to a truth and claim it and apply it and LOVE it and share it! So, how do I get my older kids to start eating more fruits and veggies when for so long those foods have been "sides"? I educate them! I let them watch documentaries with me about factory farming, the disappearing rainforests, the health effects of eating a carnivorous diet ... how our bodies work, and how animals feel. We watch beautiful, colorful, hope filled YouTube videos about this amazing planet, yummy vegan recipes, and we connect online with like minded individuals. We buy books about loving the planet and all people and sentient beings. My babies are making the connection and I can't say enough how wonderful it is to have a child say "no thanks" to an old favorite because they now know the harm that was caused to create that food... and the harm it will cause inside of them. So, @ellenfisher and @earthandy , thank you for making me think!! Keep the tips coming, and to all the other mamas... never be afraid to change when you know it's right ... your kiddos will respect and love you for your strength!” THANK YOU @Sierasoul84 🙏🏻!
For those y'all interested on educating young ones: check out @bitesizevegan’s “kid series” YouTube videos on veganism! like “how KIDS can save the world!” “Do fish have FEELINGS?” and “why eggs are gross!” Also, for older kids ready for documentaries, @cowspiracy on Netflix and “Earthlings” are amazing.
I have so many more posts I wanna share from this feature. I'll post more within the next couple days!
