Happy Veggie Kids: Mac! »
Hey people! Welcome to a new Vegansaurus series: Happy Veggie Kids! Are you tired of people acting like it’s child abuse or something to deny kids meat? OMG, the babies, they need the bacon! Without it, they will be pale and sickly weaklings! I, for one, am over it. So let’s show the world what happy and healthy little veggie kids are out there!
I have some great interviews with great kids and I’ll be rolling them out periodically. First kid up: Mac! Look at that face!
Mac is a three-year-old (almost four!) vegan living in Ottawa, ON, Canada.
Vegansaurus: What is your favorite food?
Mac: Hot potatoes.
[Mom note: He loves oven fries, mashed potatoes, pierogi, tater tots, latkes, anything potato!]
What is your favorite kind of birthday cake?
Lemon one with the pink icing like for my birthday last year.
Why are you vegan?
So I can be like you, Mommy. And because it’s nice and fun.
Do you like being vegan? Why?
Yeah because all the food is so yummy.
Is it ever hard to be vegan?
No it’s always soft to be vegan.
[Mom note: Ha!]
What do your friends think about you being vegan?
They think it’s great to be that.
What is your favorite animal? Why?
Cow because I want to hug ‘em.
Do you like pink dinosaurs? Can you draw one for us? We would love it!
Yeah that would be cool!
[Mom note: but he doesn’t know how to draw that, he says]
Yay! Thanks Mac! Our first happy vegan kid. Plus: how cute is he? Those cheeks! Email me if you want your vegan or vegetarian kid to participate!
