As a vegan parent, some of the most frustrating moments occur at mealtimes when you are out and about. Not because you can’t just pop into McDonald’s or toss your kid some Dunkaroos. But because eating with other parents in parks or shopping centres or at playgroups or preschool outings always provokes the same questions: “You’re vegan? Are your kids? How can you feed your children such a restricted diet? How can you deprive them of so much?”
