Is it Wrong to Raise a Child Vegan?

“If a kid ever realized what was involved in factory farming, they would never touch meat again.” ~ James Cromwell

After recently reading a debate on a website where people offered their point of views on raising a child vegan, I thought I would share a few facts and information to correct some of the most common misperceptions.

The debate showed a poll that said 21 percent of people agree that it is wrong to raise a child vegan, whereby an overwhelming 79 percent stated that they believe it is the right thing to do.

One of the first points made, at the top of the page, was by someone who claimed that it is selfish for a parent to deny a child meat or dairy, as well as stating that they did not think it was moral to make the decision even if eating meat was animal abuse, or refraining from it was an ethical decision.

Whenever I consider whether it is morally right or wrong for a child to consume meat and dairy, or if the parents are selfish if they don’t allow it, I always come back to the same point:

Children are naturally compassionate and caring. They do not have the same awareness that adults have, or the knowledge of what occurs in factory farms or slaughterhouses. The reason many people do not tell children exactly what goes on is that it can be extremely traumatic for a child to learn the darker side of the meat and dairy industry, and the abuse and suffering that animals go through so that humans can consume them—or often parents don’t know themselves.

“The problem is that humans have victimized animals to such a degree that they are not even considered victims. They are not even considered at all. They are nothing; they don’t count; they don’t matter. They are commodities like TV sets and cell phones. We have actually turned animals into inanimate objects—sandwiches and shoes.” ~ Gary Yourofsky

It’s quite shocking really that many feel they cannot openly communicate with children about the abuse that animals go through, as it would likely haunt and traumatize them. That in itself tells its own story.

Almost all children adore animals. Their natural instinct is to show affection to animals, not to cause them harm. If they saw, or were told, the story of where their bacon, cheese, or milk came from, and they had the ability to make rational choices, I believe that it is highly unlikely that any child would still feel comfortable eating an animal’s meat, or drinking its fluids.

“If well-balanced, veganism promotes a healthful pattern of eating, and most will likely enjoy more fruits, vegetables, and fiber than non-vegetarians.”

Therefore, considering this, I personally think it is immoral to feed a child something that is the produce of unimaginable, horrific, and prolonged suffering.

I have talked to many who are vegan who say that they wish their parents had explained where food comes from when they were younger, as once vegans and vegetarians awaken to the cruelty and make the connection between what is on our plates, and what occurred before it got there, we are horrified to know that for so many years we played a part in the barbaric abuse and suffering of sentient animals.

One of the reasons that many believe that children should become aware of where their food and other animal byproducts come from, is that by the time people reach adulthood they have spent so many years consuming it that they consider it “normal.”

Some people even believe that certain animals were placed on this planet purely so that humans can eat them.

It seems that there is still a widely held belief that animals are pasture-raised, enjoying the freedom of the outdoors where they can live alongside their offspring. The reality is that only a small percentage of cattle ever see natural daylight, and the majority of dairy cows have their babies ripped away from them the moment they are born.

I personally think that the lives of dairy cows are a living hell, and that no mother, whether animal or human, should be forcibly impregnated, and have to repeatedly give birth, before having their offspring taken from them so humans can drink the milk that was intended for their baby.

It seems that many people have become so conditioned to consume animal products that they have become either ignorant or numb to the emotional, mental, and physical pain that animals endure.

One comment on the debate that declares that it is child abuse and neglectful to force your child to be vegan due to the lack of vitamin B in a vegan diet.

I understand the concern about a vitamin B-12 deficiency, which is why many vegans seek the advice of a medical professional before choosing to give their children a B-12 supplement, or they ensure their diet includes soy, almond, or coconut plant milk, soy products, and breakfast cereals that either have, or are fortified with, needed nutrients. Soy and oat milks are not recommended for babies under one year old, as they lack the vital nutrients required for growth, however there is a variety of healthy alternatives to consider.

Vegans are not the only ones at risk from a B-12 deficiency as children whose diets are high in sugary products could also suffer, as high sugar consumptioninterferes with B-12 absorption.

Not all parents choose to raise their children vegan purely to reduce the suffering of animals. Many carry out a considerable amount of research in regards to what goes into what they eat, and hold strong beliefs that eating a plant-based diet is a far healthier option for children than one including meat and dairy products.

Another reason that many opt for veganism is to help the planet and to support the elimination of world hunger, as almost every study carried out by scientists has found that the meat (cattle especially) industry is the largest contributor to global warming. 

Although I strongly advocate for a vegan diet for children, I also think that it should only be an option if the caregiver has first carried out a substantial amount of research, along with seeking the advice of a nutritionist and/or medical professional.

It’s World day against Cyber-Censorship

The fight for online freedom of expression is more essential than ever. By creating new spaces for exchanging ideas and information, the Internet is a force for freedom. In countries where the traditional media are controlled by the government, the only independent news and information are to be found on the Internet, which has become a forum for discussion and a refuge for those who want to express their views freely.

Wave Goodbye to Google Wave?

As some of you may have heard, Google Wave started its first ‘wave’ of beta testing. Wednesday September 30, Google sent out over 100,000 preview invitations to developers, businesses, universities, and early bird beta testers who signed up first. Some of these users were even encouraged to nominate other people to receive early invitations, because Google Wave is much more useful when someone you know is using it too.

Under pressure from the music and film industries, France had pushed hard for tough measures against illegal downloaders. French President Nicolas Sarkozy had advocated a “three strikes and you’re out” rule, under which Internet use would be tracked and users caught downloading would be warned twice before their Internet access would be cut off for a year. Britain is also considering such a move, lawmakers said. Read the rest of this entry »

Primer | the Israeli settlements

As of May 2009, there were 280,000 Israelis living in 121 settlements in the West Bank, and 190,000 in East Jerusalem. Settlements range in their character from farming communities to suburbs to frontier villages, and, in the case of East Jerusalem, city neighborhoods.

The United Nations and other major international bodies consider the settlements a violation of international law, though this is disputed by Israel and some legal scholars.
