Hi everyone! I became a vegetarian “late” in life, after my two sons were already grown up. But I have been very interested in learning more about how people can raise children as vegetarians. Plus, I have had people ask me if I thought it was possible. I have to admit, I have thought back to how I would have faced the challenge as my kids were growing up and the task seems daunting. So, I did a little research and found there is a lot of information out there for the Googling.
Here’s an awesome website (just click on the link) I found with a ton of information on how to feed kids and the family as vegetarians. I would have loved this when my kids were little!
Another great website full of information I found is here. Again, lots of information about feeding kids and the whole family.
Finally, one of my favorite sites for getting vegetarian information in general is the PETA website. It was really helpful for me with ideas for making the transition. Total disclaimer here – this is not a website for the faint-hearted. It can be pretty extreme and graphic in their quest to protect animals, but if you can get past that (or not, your choice) there is a ton of good information to be found. I found this article that is helpful for feeding a vegetarian child, or even if you want some ideas for just incorporating more meat-less meals into their diet.
Hope you find this helpful!
