A sensible, passionate rebuttal of those occasional ‘vegan parents starve child’ articles that waft our way. “I’d argue that what all these stories have in common is not that that the families claimed to be vegan, but that they’re all fucking idiots.” The future is vegan 😎🌻

Stories linking cases of extreme child neglect to plant-based diets are peddling dangerous rhetoric, writes Jai Breitnauer. When I read about the malnourished toddler in Sydney this week, who at 19 months was so severely starved she looked like a newborn baby, I was heartbroken and outraged. But

The Vegan Society of Aotearoa assembles a parcel of delicious, locally produced, plant-based cheeses to send to the New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern. Included are cheeses from Savour, Angel Food, ZENZO, Terra Nut Cheese and Crescent Cashew Nut Cheese. We put this package together after the Prime Minister responded to James Cameron's call for farmers to ditch meat and dairy for the sake of the environment. She said: "I'm from the Waikato I don't know that I'd be allowed to go home if I became vegan, and I love cheese." We can't do much about the open-mindedness of her family, but we at least wanted to show Jacinda that there is a beautiful range of delicious, locally produced, plant-based cheese available -- without the unpleasant aftertaste of environmental damage and animal suffering. The future is vegan!

Our food system is broken and it is the most vulnerable who suffer. I know there a plenty of parents here whose kids are getting a diet rich with vegetables and fruit. But blaming individual choice over the massive systemic barriers to healthy eating that many face is no road to a solution. The future of our food system is vegan 😎🌻

With children's vegetable intake in decline, decision makers are too focused on pointing the finger at parents, a new study suggests. When it comes to children's nutrition, key players in our food system are stuck on the idea of individual responsibility. That's a key finding of new research that
