Next week, Vegan Is Love, a children’s book that extols the reasoning behind adopting a plant-based diet, will be hitting shelves nationwide. Author Ruby Roth, a 29-year-old mother of two, will be appearing on NBC’s morning show Today today to promote the book, which has been a subject of controversy in many mainstream media outlets due to mixed opinions about children’s abilities to properly manage vegan nutrition.
