Is food vegan simply because it doesn’t come from a cow? This question has puzzled one in five Britons.
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.
