Reality TV star Lucy Watson is sparking quite the debate on social media. The former “Made in Chelsea” star and her husband, James Dunmore, have shared their joy as they are expecting their first child. However, what attracted particular attention was a statement from Lucy during a question and answer session with her fans. The expectant mother said she plans to raise her baby on a vegan diet.
Lucy also told how her followers asked her questions about the alleged links between her fertility struggle and her choice to be vegan. Watson wrote: “During this journey, many people told me that I should stop following a vegan diet, claiming that it would prevent me from getting pregnant. But in my case this is not the case. There are people who have drug addictions and they still manage to get pregnant. Being vegan won’t stop me.”
Trauma as a child
His strong dedication to a plant-based lifestyle is rooted in a childhood memory: witnessing a lamb being slaughtered on the family farm, an experience that profoundly influenced his food choices forever. From that point on, she has been actively committed to animal welfare and plant-based living. Her passion has even led to the publication of two cookbooks dedicated to “plant-based” diets. As Lucy prepares for motherhood, she is determined to share the values she holds dear in raising her child. For her, veganism is not just a food choice; it is an act of respect towards animals and a commitment to a compassionate lifestyle
The decision to raise a child on a vegan diet generates interest and, above all, discussion. Veganism, as a dietary regime, completely excludes products of animal origin, including meat, dairy products and eggs, and is based mainly on plant foods such as fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes. Supporters believe that a well-balanced vegan diet can provide all the essential nutrients needed for a child’s healthy growth, including protein, calcium and vitamins. Additionally, it can teach children empathy towards animals and a more sustainable approach to life.
