The Carnivore’s Guide to Raising a Vegan

Are you a meat-and-three-veg kind of family? Is your idea of a vegetarian meal a Vegemite sandwich? Brace yourselves - we’re talking about how to handle the news that your teen wants to turn veggie or (just breathe!) vegan. Ondine Sherman shares her advice on how to keep them alive and healthy and whether you should let them watch those horrific animal cruelty videos.

Plus, could headphones be sending your kids deaf? We’ve got advice to make sure your little ones don't ruin their hearing. And in case you missed it, six-year-olds are dying their hair now, but it’s glorious rainbow coloured unicorn hair. So, would you let your daughter do it?


Your hosts are Holly Wainwright and Andrew Daddo
