INTERVIEW WITH A VEGAN: Leo, age 5

{Leo loving life at Mildred’s in Soho}

It’s been a while since there’s been an interview on Win Friends With Salad (January to be precise!), so I thought what better way to kick off another round of Vegan Interviews than a chat with my favourite Little Vegan, my 5 year old nephew Leo!

Name: Leo | Age: 5 and a half

What’s your favourite animal and why?

Cheetah! Because it goes super fast!

When did you go Vegan?

Christmas. {Leo stopped eating animals in August 2016, age 4, when he found out meat was animals. Dairy was slowly phased out when he learnt about the dairy industry and he made the switch to Vegan on Boxing Day (it was entirely his choice, he went fully vegan once he’d finished his non Vegan chocolate stash)}

Bad.

Is that why you stopped eating animals?

Yeah.

    THIS is THE cutest. I hope Leo grows up to be a vegan super hero and follow in the footsteps of the world’s first vegans that have obviously inspired him so much! x

      He is such a sweetheart, hopefully he will start cooking soon too! We’re all very excited to see what he grows up to be! Sadly my Sister broke the news to him that me & Tom weren’t in fact the world’s first vegans 🙁 xx
