Wendy became vegetarian in her teens and through her influence
most of her family followed. Long term presenter of the TV show
Pet Rescue, she is scathing about the people she interview who
claim to be animal lovers while munching on a ham sandwich from
a factory farmed pig. “I can’t imagine ever eating
a piece of meat again!” She became vegan a few years
ago and has decided to bring up both her children – Jack
and Freddy – as vegans.
hate it when they put that little claim on milk that it’s
completely ‘natural’ Yes, it’s natural for the
cow but not for humans. I’m adamant that cow’s milk
is for cows, goat’s milk is for goat’s and human milk
is for humans.
breastfeeding Jack for three months he went on to soya formula
and has thrived on it ever since! I must say that I could not bear
the thought of putting dead flesh into my baby’s
mouth. Jack has a colourful and varied diet combining vegetarian
foods with my dairy-free alternatives to margarine, ice-cream,
yoghurt, cream cheese etc. I have heard many times of the parents
who are reluctant to tell their kids where burgers and bacon sandwiches
come from. When Jack is old enough to understand I will have no
hesitation in telling him the truth: the only way surely that anyone
can then be expected to make an informed decision. My pet hate
is the way we are brainwashed from a young age to love some animals
and eat others!
