Video: Little Boy Explains Vegetarianism
I have to admit it, you guys: when my friend Zach sent me this video, I cried.
My husband and I are raising our child vegetarian, and this felt like it might be a glimpse at the compassionate kiddo-to-be we are raising! Our baby, Darrol Henry, is only three months old right now, but once in a while when I see older kids I feel like I’m getting a preview of his future. This video was one of those moments for me, and I couldn’t resist sharing it with you!
In the video, Luiz’s mother serves him octopus gnocchi, which spurs a conversation about eating animals. Vegetarian and vegan mommas and poppas, get out your hankies, then hit play:
The quote that got me? “These animals…you gotta take care of them…and not eat them!”
Over at our sister site, Planetsave, Zach shares a second video with some more grown-up reasons to eat veg. Click here to check that out!
