I am the mother of a 12 year old vegeterian. She did this on he rown accord when she was 8 years old. The odd thing was that I had been a vegeterian during her pregnancy. Sorry to say, I fell off the wagon. However, I support her 100%. We have a plethora of meat analogies in the freezer, and make most of our dishes meat-less to make sure she can partake in the meals.

Many of our close friends and some family also have juumped on the band wagon and made sure that meals are friendly to her life style. She has been didligent in her being a Tree-hugger as she has been so fondly referred to as. At least she is a cute tree hugger.

So I come here as a parent who wants to support her child with recipes and information that can keep her up to date and on top of things in the veggie world. Thanks for listening!

It's great to hear that you're so supportive. I went veg when I was 9 and I know it meant the world to me to have my family support me

Welcome, and it's nice to see such a supportive parent! I went vegetarian when I was 7 and it would have been impossible without my mother helping me
