Just read this essay - Vegetarian Too Young about a mom with a daughter who decided at 4 years of age to go vegetarian. The mom is still eating meat now, 3 years later, even though the kid is still vegetarian. This article surprised me, one because the parents are still meat eaters and the girl was really young IMO to go veg all of her own accord - I've rarely, maybe never seen a kid this young go veg alone.

 

I do like that the mom seems to totally support the diet and it also made me wonder if any parents here went veg due to their kids. I was vegetarian before my son was born, so I'm used to that process. I'd expect it would be different if a kid went veg first though.

It is not too young to go veg at 4 years if the parents support it and give good food.

 

The parents of my girlfriend went veg when she started. But she was about 18 and her parents about 60 years old.


My usual answer: I have never heard a convincing reason to eat meat.

When I was 6 years old I announced I was going vegetarian. My announcement apparently converted my mom. But we only went pescatarian until I was 8. Then at 8 we went lacto-ovo vegetarian. But now as adults we're vegan :)

My mom went vegetarian after me(for religious reasons). After sometime my brother went vegetarian(his wife was vegetarian). I was vegetarian a long time before both of them. I don't think I was a influence though.

I went veg after my son, although it's something I've always wanted to do.
