For a bachelor’s thesis, it was investigated in which areas of children‘s lives barriers to the implementation of a vegan diet occur and how parents perceive their interaction with their social environment in this regard. A special focus was placed on the families’ relationship with pediatricians as well as pediatricians’ attitude towards a child’s vegan diet. 226 parents of vegan children (aged 0 to 12) were completed an online survey.
