Should I just give her meat or none at all or let her pick?

So I was a lacto-ovo-vegetarian before I was pregnant with DD, but with how badly animic I was, my doctor told me to start eating at least chicken/turkey.  But after I had my DD, I went back to being vegetarian.  My DD had now 11 months old, and I don't know if it would be a good idea or not to not give her meats.  She has had some meat already, and Dh thinks we should keep giving it to her until she is older and let her pick if she wants to be like Mommy or Daddy (he eats meat).  I kind of agree, but I don't want to give her red meats.  Is that a bad idea?  Should I just give her meat or none at all?

I would give her meat and let her pick later. I went through this as well. I'm not much of a meat eater and I don't give my dd red meat either. She really only gets some pork and chicken from me.

Your instincts are right. Yes I would give her meat. You don't have to give her red meat.

I would give her meat and let her decide what she wants later on.

I agree with letting her choose later...

I agree with letting her have meat and her deciding when she's ready which she'd rather eat.
