Emma Gannon Casts Vegan Parenting As Dangerous In New Novel

by | July 28, 2020

A new novel by bestselling author Emma Gannon suggests that raising children vegan is dangerous and can lead to malnutrition.

The book — Olive — which was released earlier this year, explores the “taboo” topic of choosing not to have children.

In the book, one of the child characters is said to have developed rickets after being raised on a vegan diet.

Olive has been described by popular author Sophie Kinsella as “an insightful, brilliantly observed and honest book about fertility, choices, and the pressures that women face today.”

Gannon touches on the topic of veganism in her book through a conversation between two of the main characters.

Describing parenting as “pretty simple,” one of the characters explains to the other how the plant-based child in question has become ill after not getting enough nutrients.

“A Big Span Of Different Paths”

“I hope there’s something in it for everyone,” said Gannon of her book.

“I don’t think you have to be a child-free woman to like the book, I feel like the characters go across a big span of different paths and different personalities and different desires for your life.”
