The Daily Mail reported that parents are upset with a British nursery’s decision to introduce a 100 percent vegan menu for all of the children.
Jigsaw Day Nurseries in Chester plans on introducing the new menu on January, which would remove meat, fish, eggs and dairy products and set up a full-fledged plant-based diet for its 260 children, who are 0-4 years of age.
Parents criticized this move claiming that the decision was made without being informed from the outset. Some of the parents argued that the nurseries are “imposing a lifestyle choice” which “discriminates” against children who eat meat.
Staff at the two nurseries plan to offer lentil-based “’Shepherdless Pie”, coconut rice pudding desserts, and serve cereal with soy or oat milk.
The founder of the nurseries, Claire Taylor, defended this move which she believes was “’made with the children and the planet’s future in mind.”
One of the mothers, who has a three-year-old daughter enrolled at Jigsaw Curzon House Nursery and remained anonymous, stated: “Just to enforce it on us without any say isn’t right – they shouldn’t be making these decisions on my behalf.”
She added, “If my daughter wants to be a vegan when she’s older then that’s fine but I’ll have that conversation with her myself.”
Additionally, another parent, who remained anonymous, stated: “To impose a lifestyle choice on these children before they can make their own mind up is plain wrong. If anything, it discriminates against those kids who enjoy a diet of meat and fish. To ban them from eating meat is outrageous. It’s simply not their decision to make.”
On the other hand, other parents have praised the move on social media and encouraged other nurseries to follow in Jigsaw Curzon House Nursery’s footsteps.
Natalie Stevens posted on Facebook: “It’s like saying you don’t want your children to be educated in what will save our planet. Vegan or not, this is an incredibly healthy sounding menu and I am thrilled our son will be eating this kind of food.”
Rebecca Louise Cusato gave her two cents: “If parents want their children to eat meat they can at home for Dinner. We are not supposed to consume meat in every meal as humans anyway. It’s an economically friendly diet, that involves no animal abuse or unsustainable sources. I just think some people need to be more educated on the word Vegan and what unsustainable sources are doing to the environment.”
Dieting is another front of the political correctness wars.
Bashing the consumption of meat has become a fad among climate change activists and other factions of the Left.
Many believe that meat consumption contributes to global warming.
To solve this, several political candidates have offered the idea of taxing meat.
If they can’t get legislative means of curbing meat consumption, the Left will gladly try to shame meat eaters in private institutions like Jigsaw Curzon House Nursery and impose their dietary standards in private institutions.
Even mundane actives such as eating habits, are not exempt from the left’s busybody activism.
Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit
She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.
A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.
Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.
Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.
A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.
Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.
So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.
Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”
Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:
The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.
Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.
Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”
He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”
Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
