Vegan teens are one of the fastest growing sections of our ever expanding community. This fact isn’t surprising, as teenagers are now better informed than ever over matters such as climate change and animal welfare. Once you know the facts, making the decision to eschew animal products becomes a whole lot easier.

The problem is, however, that many of these vegan teens have very non-vegan parents. Now, when I say problem, I don’t mean the parents are the problem (and I certainly don’t think the teens are!), what I’m addressing here is the divide – both in knowledge and lifestyle choices.

Teen years can often be full of friction anyway, so throwing in a total change in diet can often lead to stand-offs and showdowns, but it really doesn’t have to be that way. The overwhelming majority of parents simply want what’s best for their kids…regardless of how obstropolous they’re being!

So, with this in mind, we’ve put together some posts to help parents of vegan teens see why their sons and daughters have decided to ditch animal products and proudly pronounce themselves vegan.
