Kid Celebs go Vegan

Celebrities taking vegan pledges has become a part of Hollywood culture, and now Tinseltown’s tiny ones are next in line to take on veganism. Several Hollywood kids have taken the two-week vegan challenge and loved it.

Kid rapper Lela Brown, who was a contestant on “America’s Got Talent,” has also signed up. “I decided to do the cleanse because I thought it would be a really cool experience to try being vegan,” she said. She also said she was hoping for more energy and to “clear out her pores.”

Johnny Sequoyah, 11, of the show “Believe” said that in the two days since she started the vegan challenge, she already feels better. She loves donuts and French Fries, she said, but has learned that when “you’re eating only junk food, it makes you really tired. Whenever I finish a hamburger or doughnut I do feel tired and sometimes in a bad mood after.” She said she likes smoothies, and also kale salad with lemon as her favorite “healthy substitute.”

It’s wonderful to see the connection being made by children that what we eat has an effect on our health. Hopefully, they are also learning about the positive effects a vegan diet can have on the animals and the planet along the way.
