Happy Veggie Kids: Anna! »
This is the adorable Anna! She’s almost five years old and lives in St. Paul, Minn. I’m loving her short-sleeve sweater over long-sleeve look! And the shades! THE SHADES! Anna’s dad blogs over at This Little Piggy Had Tofu so check it out!
Vegansaurus: What is your favorite food?
Anna: Corn on the cob.
What is your favorite kind of birthday cake?
Why are you vegan?
'Cause we don't want to eat animals 'cause they want to be free and out wherever they live.
Do you like being vegan? Why?
Yes. ‘Cause we don’t eat animals and I like animals. I don’t want to eat them ‘cause I want them to be free.
Is it ever hard to be vegan?
Yes it is sometimes, when they’re not vegan and they want to turn vegan.
Dad: Oh, you mean it’s hard for other people to go vegan
Dad: OK, is it hard for you to be vegan?
Anna: No, ‘cause I’m already vegan. [Ed. note: fair enough!]
What do your friends think about you being vegan?
I don’t know what they think.
Dad: Do they know you’re vegan?
Dad: And they don’t really say anything about it?
What is your favorite animal? Why?
My favorite animal is a sheep. ‘Cause it has furry stuff on it and it goes “Baa! Baa!” [Dad note: Anna will sometimes correct books when they refer to an animal as an “it,” yet she will occasionally make the same mistake herself.]
Do you like pink dinosaurs? Can you draw one for us? We would love it!
Anna: Yes I do! Yes!
[Dad note about the picture: That’s a triceratops eating grass. And there’s grass behind the triceratops. And above the triceratops. And a flower and a sun. Because why not?]
LOVING IT. As usual, if you have a vegan or vegetarian kid who wants to do the interview, email me!
