Ask about why they want to stop being vegan to help create a solution

The only way to get to a solution is to hear the problem! There are a few common causes of why your kid may want to switch over to an omnivore diet after being vegan for a while. One common reason may be the peer pressure of their friends at school, non-vegan family members, or even the media. Another common reason (which is mostly seen in children who recently made the transition to veganism) could be that they miss certain foods that they used to enjoy. In order to help your children in this situation, you can have a conversation about their feelings as a child and your feelings as a parent concerning the cruelty-free lifestyle in order to guide them back.
