      Two Articles on Veg Kids

      The first piece, from a U.S. newspaper, is on veg teens. One interesting point made in the article is that going veg can help kids pay more attention to what they eat, thus, helping them to choose healthier diet options. The second article, a short piece from Harvard’s Graduate School of Education, looks at the moral reasons behind younger kids’ choice to go veg.
