Whether counseling celebrities (including PETA pal Courtney Stodden) on VH1's Couples Therapy, offering advice to callers on her SiriusXM radio show, penning bestselling
books, or working with patients in her private practice, marriage, family, and child
therapist Dr. Jenn Berman has helped bring many families closer together.
Now, in an exclusive interview
with PETA, Dr. Jenn explains why raising vegan kids has proved to be a winning
approach for her own family:
The soundness of Dr. Jenn's family plan is supported by
another famous family doctor—acclaimed pediatrician Dr. Benjamin Spock—who
explained in his classic book, Dr.
Spock's Baby and Child Care, that children raised on plant foods "are
less likely to develop weight problems, diabetes, high blood pressure, and some
forms of cancer."
No matter whether you have kids, grandkids, or "fur kids" or just remain a kid at heart, eating delicious vegan food is the ideal
prescription for animals, for your health, and for our planet.
For more information about raising kind, responsible children
and living with compassion, check out PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk's book Making Kind Choices.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
