I am really fortunate that at the toddler group I take my youngest daughter to, they usually provide all vegan food for the snacks so that she is able to eat everything that is available.
Today however they had cheese on the table. I was really proud of my 2 year old when she said 'Mummy its ok because I can have my cheese at home.' She is getting so grown up now and doesn't mind at all if she can't have food that isn't vegan.
I do sometimes find it hard having to deny them food that all other children are having especially at parties when all the children are demolishing sweets as fast as they can and my kids are just watching on and wondering why the other kids are so excited by products that they have never seen. However I just have to hold on to the thought that I'm doing it for their best interest and even if we weren't vegan they still wouldn't be allowed to eat all that sugar and additives.
