Kids Going Meatless: Interview and Trivia Quiz
We know a lot of you are curious about being vegetarian. I recently talked to a 7-year-old who gave up meat when she was 6, and here is her perspective:
Q: Why did you decide to become a vegetarian?
A: I don’t think it’s right to kill animals. It feels good because I love animals and don’t want to hurt them. It all started because I thought pigs were cute, when I was little.
Q: What foods do you choose to eat instead/ what are your favorite vegetarian alternatives?
A: Fake meat, rice tacos, and green beans. I also eat a lot of fruit, quinoa and cheese.
Q: What do your parents think?
A: They think I’m a picky eater and wish I would eat more vegetables. But they are proud of me.
Q: Do you miss eating meat?
A: No, because fake meat tastes like real meat. I just tried vegetarian breakfast sausage this weekend and loved it!
