“I am currently doing Veganuary and it’s going really well but I have a concern about where I will now get my iron from. What are the best sources? Is it something to be concerned about now I am vegan?
First things first! Let me introduce my stoopid self! Hello! I am Weird Vegan Lady! Aka ‘Oi! Wife!’ Aka ‘Mummy, I wet myself!’ Aka Amy! Nice to meet you. Hope you’re having an ace day, and are looking forward to some crazy… Cause that’s what you’re gonna get! Oh and some food… There may be some of that too, we’ll see! Super excited to be asked to guest blog on Vegan Food UK! These guys are awesome! But you knew that right? Good!
Vegan Food UK first came across The Vegan Kid (AKA William Hibbitts) on the popular Facebook group Vegan Food UK. His Dad, Mark, posted up pictures of his son’s vegan Peanut Butter Sponge Cake and the group went mad showering TVK with almost 400 Likes.
Since the first post, Mark continues to post up TVK’s creations and he is slowly becoming a star. So we thought we best catch up with the 12 year old vegan kid and find out what makes him tick.
Definitely the theme of the week in the mainstream news media is ‘vegan parenting’. One can only assume this is due to the story that rippled across the globe about a baby who was completely malnourished as a result of his/her parents being vegan – well that’s how the papers reported it. The truth of the matter was that the baby was missing some vital vitamins and minerals that every newborn needs to survive, and whether you are vegan or a meat-eater, everyone should make sure that their children get the essentials.
