Vegan Kids Encourage Others to Change Their Lives

Like us on Facebook:

Vegan kids are taking over the world, and they’re bright, compassionate, and kind! Youtube personality Bite Size Vegan, AKA Emily Moran Barwick, spoke with twenty-four vegan kids and their parents from all over the world in her latest video “My Parents Won’t Let Me Go Vegan!” It’s geared towards children who want to make the change in their own lives, and inspire others to. Like I said yesterday, children are intelligent and naturally interested in protecting animals, so it was no surprise to us here in the office to see such amazing children telling their stories. Needless to say, I am delighted.

The speakers ranged in age from tiny toddlers to teenagers, but all of them were over-the-moon happy about their vegan lifestyles. “Our bodies shouldn’t be graveyards for dead animals,” says Izzy, a seven year old from Massachusetts, “They should be filled with a bunch of food like falafel… everything vegan.” I think it was at this point in the video where I started to tear up. Much like Izzy, I also love falafel and animals. Jesse Jace, a four year old says he is vegan “because I love the animals, and save the planet.” Children are full of huge dreams, and it was so wonderful to see that a few of these kids had families who supported them making a difference.

The second part of the video featured kids and teenagers whose families and friends weren’t supportive of their decisions, but they made the choice to hold their ground. “Number one thing is to do your research,” said Kevin, a confident thirteen year old. While speaking about families he said, “when you can prove to them being vegan has no negative impacts on you or anyone else, then they will be more accepting of it.” Other youth explained that it’s smart to learn how to cook, and start accompanying your parents on grocery shopping trips. “Take charge of your own cooking,” said Ronya, a teenager living in New Zealand.

Barwick has tons of other videos that are geared towards youth, and she explains them with compassion and tact. Truly, kids are creating something amazing with their own vegan activism.
