  • it depends. . . how old is your son?
    talk to him if you can and ask him? There may be a reason he just doesn't want to. If he is too young try mixing it in to other foods. . .disguise it like in Mac and cheese and such. If it is a personal preference remember you can talk to your kids dr. and get him set up with a dietitian and all to regulate a proper diet minus the meat. . .

  • has your son ever eaten meat? how did he react to it? most ppl that don't like meat have an allergy to it. they can't break down the enzymes in meat. maybe that's the case with your son. talk to your family doctor about having him tested.then there are some kids just plain don't like the texture. my nephew use to hide his meat in his glass of milk. gross i know but then he would drink the milk and eat the soggy pieces of meat. so i think my sister (his mom) over cooked the meat and made it very tough.
