Children Gone Vegetarian!

child with vegetables

No doubt picking up on the vegetarian theme from Mr. Henry, the LA Times has an article about what to do when your child chooses to become a vegetarian.

My husband and I are wholeheartedly omnivorous, but I have already had talks with the Munchkin about the meat we are eating and the specific animals from whence our meat comes from.   For instance the other day, he made me list off all the different meat products that can be made from pork.  What can I say, we have fascinating dinner conversations around here.

But, the Munchkin has already asked questions pertaining to how the animals are raised, and where are they raised, and he may have even asked at some point how they are killed to which Glinda just sort of put her fingers in her ears and sang “La, la, la, la…”

No, I didn’t do that.  Really.

What I do need to do is get rid of that copy of  The Jungle I’ve got laying around here somewhere before he gets his hands on it.

I kid, I kid…

Let’s just say, though, that if one day my son chose to become a vegetarian, it wouldn’t surprise me.  I’d like to think that I would support him in that decision, even if I didn’t necessarily agree with the philosophy behind it.

However, unless he decides to expand his current crop of approved vegetables, he will be eating nothing but fruit, carrots, and corn.
