I’m a vegetarian and just fed my baby meat!

I’ve been a picky eater my whole life. When I was younger, I used to eat veal all the time until I learned that it came from baby cows.  Then, I pretty much gave up consuming all land animal meat except for chicken. In 2009, I ate my last chicken tender from Burger King and went pescartarian. Since I’m allergic to most raw fruits, vegetables and soy, I eat fish for protein. Ok, and I love seafood.

Everyone asks me if my daughter will be a vegetarian like me or a meat lover like her daddy.  At her six-month doctor’s appointment, we were told she could start eating meat. It hurt my heart a little to feed her chicken, but I’m not going to deny my growing girl protein. When she’s older, she can form her own opinions and until then, my husband can cook her healthy chicken nuggets. But I think she might be more like her mommy anyway, because she won’t eat meat without some carrots on the spoon too!
