Support her decision by making her other meal options or by teaching her how to cook simple yet nutritious meals that will be good for her but that don't include meat. Don't insist that she eat meat if she doesn't want to.

I think this is common. My now 18 yr old is doing the same thing. She won't eat steak when we grill etc. She will have a burger or dog here and there but that is about all. I push the peanut butter and beans, tuna, anything with a good source of protein. It will either pass or she will be a vegetarian...she could make worse choices in life. I would not worry about it too much, as long as her doc says she is healthy.
