Vegan mum only feeds her five-year-old daughter raw fruit and vegetables
Raw vegan Rhiannon Griffin, 27, adopted the raw vegan lifestyle after discovering YouTuber Danny Glass, better known as Sun Fruit Dan, in March 2015. She says she felt so ‘wonderful’ after her lifestyle change that she explained the advantages to daughter Molly – and now they both eat a diet of organic fruit and smoothies.
Rhiannon said, “It’s only natural as a mum that if you’re feeling so wonderful then you want that for your little girl too. As soon as I explained to Molly in an age appropriate way the ethics of eating animal products she wanted to be vegan too.”
Rhiannon says that instead of asking for candies and junk food like other kids of her age, Molly asks for fruits and vegetables. She even likes it even more when she sees other kids eating vegan stuff. “I love how excited she gets about fruit and veg. I want to give her the best possible start in life so knowing that she respects and loves her body is an amazing thing to see.” she says.
Rhiannon and Molly are quite happy with their raw vegan lifestyle. Molly sleeps well and has not fallen sick in a very long time. ‘If I ever noticed any negative changes in her health, we would try a different diet but for now this is working.’, Rhiannon adds.
While Rhiannon says that she has never felt better she admits that she would eat differently if the diet didn’t work for her daughter.
