It's kinda funny, because I get a lot of crap from my FIL because of Ares being veggie. I also have him all worked up because I'm pregnant again, even though my first pregnancy went fine. He has even slipped Ares little ham slices off of a salad bar before, to have him spit them out and grab a banana.
We went to the WIC office a few days ago, and the lady said nothing about me being vegan and Ares being vegetarian. We were both tested to make sure the iron in our blood is fine, and it was. I was told Ares was a little short and underweight for his age, but it was normal because he was premature. This is a trained nutritionalist, so if it didn't bother her that we don't eat meat, not sure why anyone else should be bothered.
