Kim Kardashian has been blasted on social media – and accused of ‘child cruelty’ – after revealing that she feeds her children a predominantly plant-based diet.

The reality giant, who eats plant-based when she’s at home, shared the news during a Twitter Q&A.

Predominantly plant-based

Kardashian was asked if she would ever go vegan, and she replied: “I eat mostly plant-based. No meat anymore.”

She also said that her children – North, Saint, Psalm, and Chicago – eat mostly plant-based too, when someone asked ‘do the kids eat plant-based too?’

She wrote: “Yes they do! North is a pescatarian though.”


One user simply replied: “That is child cruelty.”

Another added: “Stop putting kids on vegan lmao they need meat and everything they can decide for themselves when they are older [sic].”

Some people were supportive though, with one Twitter user writing: “How? If you feed them correctly and give them supplements if they are necessary then why is it cruelty? The kids look fine. Just keep an eye on their nutrition levels and feed them well and thats it. I’m not vegan or anything but like heaps of people don’t feed their kids meat.”

Appropriate for all stages of life

Despite the views of these social media commentators, major nutritional bodies, including the British and American Dietetic Associations, say that plant-based diets can be suitable for all stages of life.

“It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases,” the American Dietetic Association says.

“Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes.”
