Lucy Watson's children will be vegans

Lucy Watson's children will be raised as vegans.

The former 'Made in Chelsea' beauty has been a vegetarian her whole life, but switched to the plant based practice, which involves eliminating all animals and their products from her diet, in January, and she's now adamant that her future kids will follow in her footsteps and will "never" eat meat or dairy.

Speaking in her Q&A video on her YouTube channel, she said: "Yes, they will [be raised as vegans]. I'm not going to have kids that eat meat or dairy. Like, I would just never do that because it's the most hypocritical thing ever.

"But I'm dating a meat eater so if he happens to be the one that I have children with then it will be difficult. But I've said to him actually that if we ever have kids, I want them to be vegan.

"I hope when I have children, it'll be a long way off because I'm only 25 and I'm quite traditional about things like that. I think I want to live my life before I have kids.

"I think it would be a lot more acceptable by the time I do it and there will be a lot more options around and there will be a lot more vegan kids around.

"The next generation is really who we're relying on to save this planet so I hope there will be a lot more vegans around."

Although Lucy is desperate to encourage as many people as possible to follow the vegan lifestyle, she has really struggled to get her boyfriend James Dunmore on the bandwagon.

She explained: "It's a really tricky one because it's hard sometimes dating someone who eats meat. It's like the thing I preach about most and I live with someone and I'm in love someone who eats meat. I think it's like out only thing that we argue about, ever. And it's his own flaw. But there are so many people in the world that eat meat and I can't be annoyed at him because it's just something that he's used to ... Ideally he wouldn't eat meat but it's up to him and I accept that."

But their clash when it comes to diet means the loved-up couple are forced to cook and eat separate meals most nights.

She added: "We do eat separate meals."
