“We are not asking Blue Peter viewers to give up meat. That was made clear both on the show and on our website which has been updated to reflect that buying seasonal food or local grass-fed meat can also make a difference to climate change. There are also other pledge options to choose from to earn a Green badge such as switching off lights or using reusable water bottles.”
The vegetarian option is part of the ‘supersize’ pledge which groups undertake. Kids can still receive their badges individually but even as a group they don’t have to choose the vegetarian meals swap, they can choose alternative options and still receive a badge.
This week (15.4.21) Blue Peter will feature a film with Welsh farmers exploring sustainable farming for future generations.
