Reindeer blood

I love the regular Waffles + Mochi show, and truly enjoy watching it with my kids (ages 5 and 3). I assumed this special would be similar, but I was not prepared for the food they showed. It showed fishes in the ocean with spears sticking thru them, which was a bit graphic. We fast forwarded through the prep bc we are a vegan family and my kids didn’t want to see it. The part where they went to Norway was completely jarring- they went from showing a clip of cute reindeers (including a baby), to showing how they use reindeer blood in their pancakes (which turn bright red btw). I understand that exposure to other cultures is valuable, but this seemed too much for a little kids show, and given it is a holiday special. Kids associate reindeer with Christmas, not with being killed for their meat and blood. Raising them vegan, I have made sure they know meat comes from animals, but seeing the blood in a bowl was sickening to them and me.
