Vegans exempt animal products from their lifestyle. This is easy enough
for committed older vegans, but how to raise a kid with no milk, ice
cream, chocolate, or candy? In today's, predominantly meat-dependent and
animal fashion crazed world, it is certainly a challenge for vegan
parents to raise their children. Fortunately, the years brought an
abundance of information about vegan fashion, vegan shoes, vegan recipes,
vegan lifestyle, and veganism. All that vegan parents need right now are
determination and creativity to encourage their children to take up the
vegan way of life.

The first hurdle vegans have to face is the question of feeding their
children. There are lots of available food choices in the market today
for vegan fare. Vegan recipes are not just salads; they extend to
casseroles, baked dishes, and even desserts. Vegan ice creams, smoothies,
and candies are now available in the market. These items taste just as
good as the traditional dairy products minus the animal abuse. Children
being raised on vegan diets won't feel any different from non-vegan kids.
The trick is to include substitutes for popular kiddie treats so vegan
children won't feel out of place with their non-vegan peers. Vegan
dieticians recommend substituting tomato sauce with meat substitutes for
regular meat sauces. There is a variety of soy cheeses and flavored soy
milk drinks that are completely vegan without sacrificing flavors. Fruit
waffles and juices are most welcomed treats. Meat substitutes in pork,
beef, poultry, or fish flavors are available. Vegan kids would not miss
out on the joys of junk food, except that theirs won't cause them acne
and make them healthier. "Junk" foods like popcorn, baked potato and
vegetable chips, sweetened dried fruits, raisins, and fruit chips are
popular choices. Beverages like fruit smoothies and fruit juices are
deliciously sinful enough to be considered junk food.

However, kids are easier to manage than teenagers, more so when they're
vegans. There are the fashion trends to reckon with: that trendy leather
jacket, the fur scarf, or the chic leather boots everyone is talking
about. A teenager must have them. Remind them if they're really up to
wearing dead animal skins on their body and then buy them some enviable
vegan fashion items. There are boutiques that sell exclusively vegan
apparel. Vegan online shops also have extensive, not to mention,
affordable and chic choices for vegan shoes, vegan clothes, vegan
jackets, and even vegan accessories. Vegan cosmetics are also available
and they have been proven to be better than the ones that are animal-
tested and made with animal oils. After all, slim and fit vegan bodies
deserve fashionably gorgeous vegan clothes.

Vegan family support groups assert that proper education and information
about animal rights and abuse is important. Understanding the vegan
lifestyle makes managing and raising vegan kids easier. When they are
aware and informed, kids are surprisingly easy to handle. They do make
their own choices, but with information, they usually make the right
choice. So they strongly advise starting vegan families to encourage each
other and educate their children to make them understand why is it good
to be vegan. With understanding, the kids become cooperative and
healthier, and the family stays together longer.
