Happy Veggie Kids: Connor! »
Look at handsome Connor! In pink, Vegansaurus’ favorite color. Connor is eight years old and has been a vegetarian for three years. He lives in Dublin, Calif. No one else in his family is a veggie but Connor doesn’t care! He’s committed. Go Connor!
Vegansaurus: What is your favorite food?
Connor: Ummm, I’d have to say mac ‘n’ cheese.
What is your favorite kind of birthday cake?
Ummm, chocolate. I haven’t really had a lot of varieties of birthday cakes.
Why are you vegetarian?
Because I love animals and I didn’t want to eat them anymore.
Do you like being vegetarian? Why?
Yes. I think that the fake food is really good and I don’t always have to eat some yucky things like steak, meatloaf…[Mom note: he means meat alternatives when he says “fake food”]
Is it ever hard to be vegetarian?
Sometimes when you don’t know if something is vegetarian or not vegetarian. [Ed. note: TRUTH]
What do your friends think about you being vegetarian?
Sometimes this boy at school says that his dad says that vegetarians are afraid meat is gonna hurt them or something. I say that’s wrong but he says, “I believe my dad.”
What is your favorite animal? Why?
A lion. I think a lion is cool and it can cross-breed with a tiger to make a tigon or a liger. I think the mane and how it fights is really cool. Especially in slow motion.
Do you like pink dinosaurs? Can you draw one for us? We would love it!
Ummm, AWESOME! “Am I on TV!” Awesome.
