    In all seriousness, though, they should've told the kids about what veganism actually is. Veganism is about not contributing to animal suffering, which I'm sure none of them would want to do.

    They should all go on a school trip to the slaughterhouse. Why not? It’s the same as taking them strawberry picking.

    Oh boy if you sat them down and explained what veganism actually is then everyone of those kids would go vegan. They are indoctrinated from day one. From the day they are born we tell them its ok to do what we do to animals because we need to eat meat. The fact that vegetarians are healthier than people who eat a standard diet, and Vegans are healthier than vegetarians, tells us all we need to know really.

    I wonder if their opinions on veganism would change if they were actually thought how animals are kept, killed and processed.

      @Happy dog So your saying keep them ignorant. It's very important to know how our foods are being prepared. A lot of the foods that we grew up eating in the last number of years have been outed as not as healthy as the marketing companies made them out to be. If you actually knew how chickens are raised and prepared I doubt you'd ever eat them again. With free range and factory farming there isn't much difference as they are both cruel

      Probably not because they’re children and that stuff isn’t their concern :/ Leave them to eat their chicken nuggies

      I'm vegan and I agree that they're wrong not to be, but their kids, half of them didn't know what veganism was or why it's necessary.

    I'm vegetarian and eat mostly vegan. It's really not bad! I never understand how people can completely reject it because of simply missing meat, there are alternatives!
    I'm 13 years old and find it easy, of course, my family can afford it so it's no issue to me but those who can afford it should at least try

    Never quite worked out how you can eat flesh but not if it comes from certain animals.
    Nobody noticed any difference when they found horse in the meat and nobody will have noticed when the human meat scandal finally gets here.

    vegans are stupid they thing not eating meat is saving the animals life or saving the planet. if every one went vegan all animals would be killed to stop them eating the crops and deforestation will still be happening to make land for all the crops, the crops that vegans eat use diesel powered machines to plant grow and harvest the crops, they are then shipped in diesel trucks, trains, ships, or plains to take the crops that grow in certain climate to the people, to make "vegan meat" requires a lot of processing and adding a lot of different chemicals to the product to make the final fake meat product. to add to this by eliminating the need for farming live stock there will be no manure to put back in to the land and will mean crops wont yield as well so ether more chemicals will need to be added or more land for growing will be needed

    Sad thing is that most grown adults don’t even know basics because they were never taught that baby boys are killed and thrown away as trash in dairy and egg industry simply because only the girls will grow up to produce breast milk and menstruations. Some adults don’t even know that cows are forcibly made pregnant every year since, just like humans, cows make milk for their babies (babies that will be separated from their mother on day one and denied that milk then shot in the head if a “commercially useless” boy)
