Vegans chase nurseries

Written by  Milking It

The battle between milk and its fake rivals is spreading to nurseries in the UK.

A charity claims that nurseries which do not offer a vegan alternative to cow milk as part of their free milk schemes are “indirectly discriminating against” children.

The Vegan Society has published a legal opinion challenging the Department of Health to include fortified plant milk in its Nursery Milk Scheme.

The charity’s legal expert wrote in a formal letter to the Government that nutritional public health initiatives for children must include fortified plant milk to cater for the growing number of vegan children.
