ABC Family’s Beverly Hills Nannies Features Vegan Fam

Nanny Amanda Averill looks after vegan children on ABC’s new reality show.

ABC Family’s new reality show Beverly Hills Nannies features Wisconsin-transplant Amanda Averill nannying for the vegan Elkins family. Not being familiar with the plant-based lifestyle, Averill finds the job to be a challenge. In the debut episode, Averill seems to have difficulty finding vegan fare in the LA area. In her search for food suitable for the children’s meat- and dairy-free diets, all that Averill can come up with is a piece of bread. Variety.com says the Elkins family, “illustrates how being vegan complicates finding a snack capable of pleasing a four-year-old.” Many viewers have taken to blogs and websites to express their concern for the portrayal and misrepresentation of the vegan lifestyle as prohibitively labor-intensive.
