The panel “Élever une famille végane dans un monde carniste” (FR) will be composed of 2 moms: Valérie Poulin and Marie-Michelle; a militant vegan teenager: Estelle Fournier; and Thao Bui: A vegan nutritionist at the Sainte-Justine hospital. The panel has the objective to answer any questions and concerns that parents of vegan children or parents thinking to make the transition, may have. The focus will be to make veganism more accessible and to give them the best tools to succeed in a carnist world full of preconceptions about plant-based/vegan nutrition for children. Questions about nutrition, the challenges vegan teenagers have to face in their school and social life, as well as the challenges vegan parents have to deal with on a daily basis, will be discussed with the audience. Overall, the panel will be informative and interactive at the same time.
