17 Vegan Foods Kids Should Definitively Be Introduced To

Time to give the kids healthier alternatives.

Between the lowest, most nutritionally wretched and taste-devoid cafeteria food you could possibly imagine and the artificially ensembled and flavored snacks that the media relentless push all day every day, kids ain’t got a chance.

They are utterly brainwashed to enjoy food that is not nutritious and not healthy by a long shot as if it was something normal. The fact that these foods were designed to be addictive as well does not help. As I said, they haven’t got a chance.

But you can give them one to finally fight back. Introduce them to the fully nutritious and natural choices that veganism has available for them. Sure, they might not be able to go in full vegan or close until adulthood, but you better believe, this is better for their long-term health than 99% of what is usually pushed down their throats, give it a try.

Childhood is incomplete without having a hot dog and it’s actually a part of childhood. Every time I eat a hot dog, it brings back the memories of my childhood.

A veggie hot dog is so yummy that your child can’t wait to have a bite. Use grilled tofu in place of the sausage. Cut tofu in stripes, marinate it with turmeric, smoked paprika, sesame oil, garlic, maple syrup, and ginger garlic paste. After marination, grill those tofu strips. Serve it with hot dog buns and some carrot and onion slices on the top.
