Milan is home to the first all-vegan kindergarten
Vegan education is expanding to younger minds.
The Vegan Herald reports that Italy’s first all-vegan kindergarten program is open for business. Nature teaches environmental issues, uses recyclable materials, and won’t incorporate any animal products in to the dishes served up at lunch and snack times. It’s a pretty good reason for parents to consider moving.
“We love and respect all animals, so we do not use any food originated from their exploitation (not only meat and fish, but also eggs, dairy and honey)”, Nature told Italian news outlet La Stampa Chronicles. “Our dishes are therefore 100% vegan.”
They’re also proud to pass on the importance of eating locally, and are providing “zero kilometre” organic produce. There are currently five children enrolled, a number that will no doubt shoot up with the growing popularity of the movement.
Located in the Citta Studi neighborhood of Milan, Nature is in existence thanks to Federica Ferrobianchi, a teacher who specializes in infant massage and also boasts a science degree in education.
