Savage or Sensible: Feeding Non-vegan Food to Your Kid’s Vegan Friend Because The Kid Requested It

Friday, August 23rd

Kimmy brought up in the feed a story from reddit about a mom who asked if it was wrong to feed meat to a 13-year-old child who follows a strict vegan diet. Her son recently had a friend stay over for dinner, and the friend's parents asked that the boy be fed vegan-friendly food. The Redditor said she'd already prepared meatloaf and mashed potatoes with butter — neither of which are vegan and offered vegetables to the friend. The friend said he wanted to try the non-vegan food, and now his parents have forbidden him from hanging out with the Redditor's son. Was feeding this kid non-vegan food savage or sensible?
