I usually stick to lurking, but this article has me hopping mad! Apparently this Italian politician is proposing that parents who subject their young children to 'reckless' diets should be prosecuted, even serving time in prison. So far so good.
But of course, what does the journalist pick up on? Oh yes, vegans! Those reckless, scurvy-ridden vegans (of which I am one - minus the scurvy!). Following a vegan diet, IMHO, is not reckless or dangerous if you take the time to research the foods you need to eat. Just like any diet!
Surely an ill-informed parent who feeds their child sugary drinks and fast food is just as reckless as a vegan one who hasn't done their research and isn't getting the proper food into their child?
True enough, there are a few preachy vegans out there, but the majority I know are normal as can be. My word, it does feel like people enjoy bashing us for our choices!
Sorry, rant over!!
