12 Vegan-Friendly Children Movies

It's safe to say that we all grow up in a society that brainwashes us from childhood to adulthood into believing the things that they want us to believe. "It's all what the media wants you to think." This is esspecially true when it comes to animal and animal derived product consumption. We're all raised to believe that drinking milk is great for our bones (I'll have to get into this topic some other time), that meat is the best source of iron and protein for us and that there's such a thing as "humane meat." In reality, of course this is all bulls**t and is only backed up by the companies that profit from our money. Sadly enough, this bull propaganda is exposed to us while we're still doing "wee wee" in our pants.

Thankfully, I will have the privilege and honor of one day raising vegan-born babies and for that, I need to watch what messages I will be showing them. Here is a list of 12 movies that we all grew up watching with great vegan messages that we can show the next generations to come!

1. 101 Dalmatians

One of my favorite movies from my childhood, "101 Dalmatians" is a great movie to show kids with a great vegan message! The villain Cruella De Vil is desperate to get a hold of all these puppies so that she can make a coat out of their fur. A great twist to the fur industry: if we don't have a problem using sheep, snake, alligator or even fox fur to make pretty coats, then why shouldn't we be able to use dog fur?

2. Bambi

It happened to the best of us: there was not a single person that did not cry like a baby when Bambi's mother was shot by a hunter. A classic Disney movie showing just how terrible hunting really is. To us, it's just an animal; to them, it's a family member.

3. Brother Bear

Another hunting related movie, "Brother Bear" is about a hunter who shoots a female bear (a mother) which makes the spirits angry and in turn, they reincarnate him as a bear. He later ends up meeting the baby cub whose mother he killed and forms a brother-like bond with him.

4. Happy Feet

"Happy Feet" is a movie about a group of penguins trying to communicate with humans by tap dancing. The penguins are trying to show humankind that they don't belong in confined shelters such as zoos or aquariums, but rather, in the wild.

5. Madagascar

Another movie much like "Happy Feet" is "Madagascar." It's about a group of wild animals being raised in a zoo and not knowing how to act once placed in the wild.

6. Chicken Run

Much like the title suggests, "Chicken Run" is about a group of chickens that try to run away from the farm they grew up once they realized they would become someone's next meal.

7. Babe

"Babe" is another farm movie about a little atypical pig that would rather be sheepdog compared to someone's dinner. There's also a duck that pretends to be a rooster and three singing mice.

8. Pocahontas

Besides being one of the best Disney movies ever, "Pocahontas" is a great film for vegas-alike. She shows all the newcomers how to respect the forest and take care of the land.

9. Wall-E

This movie. This movie is just too real! Wall-E is the very realistic expectation that will come if us humans don't change our ways. Earth is polluted with trash and deemed unfit to continue harboring the human race, therefore, all humans are now living in a spacecraft completely overrun by robots and technology and everyone is deathly obese.

10. Horton Hears a Who

"Horton Hears A Who" is a great movie to show kids. It's cute, it's fun and has the great message that everyone is important, no matter how small.

11. The Lorax

Another great Dr. Seuss movie, "The Lorax" shows the effects of greed over nature. Animal agriculture nowadays is overrun by money hungry factories. This movie shows just what could happen if we ignore nature and let our greed get the best of us.

12. Bee Movie

"The Bee Movie" is exactly what you'd expect it to be. It's a movie that clearly depicts not only why it's important not to eat honey, but also why we shouldn't use any kind of animal-derived products.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
