I have three vegan kids, and the eldest Ava who is 4 is just starting to understand the concept of being a vegan. She is constantly asking questions and I am at a bit of a loss as to how to explain why we are vegan/what meat is without going into too much detail.
I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas about talking to kids about animal products? I have mentioned the idea that some people eat animals, but it is a pretty unimaginable idea for my daughter at the moment. She can't differentiate between eating a kitten and eating a cow like most omni children can.
At the moment Ava mixes with omni and vegan children, but rarely eats with anyone other that her siblings. I doubt she has noticed that her diet is different in any way to anyone else. I'm homeschooling her, but I realise that one day in the future she is going to ask questions.
Any help/ideas on what to say?
