So my 6 and 4 year old sons informed me today that they no longer wish to eat beef. They decided that cows are useful animals, and they don't want to eat them anymore. Even after I told them all the foods they were going to have to give up, they are still adamant about not eating beef.
Then, just before dinner, my 4 year old tells me he doesn't want to eat chicken anymore, because chickens lay eggs (which he is still ok with eating eggs). So far they are still ok with eating pork and fish, but who knows, they may decide to become full fledged vegetarians. Or, this could just be a phase.
I have decided that I will not force my kids to eat meat if they don't want to, even though I have no idea how to eat as a vegetarian. I guess I have some research to do.
Would you let your kids become vegetarians, at this age, if you and hubby weren't? And if you and hubby are vegetarians, would you let them eat meat if they wanted?
