Plant based meals have been scientifically proven to be better for our health and the environment and undoubtedly better for those animals. Vegan food can be enjoyed by everyone

By adding vegan options, you aren ot only helping people choose healthier options but also offering more humane and environmentally-sustainable choices!

There is no good argument against veganism. Childr en should be made aware of the choices they are making and how to choose the right alternative if neccessary, for example most children are unaware about the human population being almost entirely lactose intolerant, having been brought up on dairy and unfamiliar with the effects it has vs. an alternative.

I would like to be able to eat the next time I am in hospital as a lactose intolerant vegetarian.

Plant based meals should always be encouraged. For health, the environment and for the animals.

Everybody should have access to healthy and planet friendly plant based food. It just makes sense. There is no way I would eat an animals flesh, eggs or secretions.

A vegan meal can be eaten by everyone. It can be made healthy, nutritious, tasteful and cheaply so why not have it as an option?

45% of world pollution caused by animal agriculture. Time is now to educate and give humans options as to how they can be part of the awareness of global warming. Time, is running out.
