I've been thinking about this lately, and I'm wondering what everybody else thinks.
It would be an easy decision if you happen to be procreating with somebody who is veg*n, but what if the other parent is omni?
I personally will never cook meat for another person. By the time I have children (when I leave home, in fact) I plan to be vegan, so I probably won't be cooking with eggs or dairy either. It would depend on how the other parent felt about raising veg*n children, but idealy I would feed my children vegan food. If daddy wants a steak, daddy can go ahead and buy, prepare and cook his steak, and mommy and the kids will be happy with their Tempeh.
When they get to the age where they start questioning why daddy eats different food, they get the speech: "Well, some people eat animals, and some people don't. People have been eating meat since the beginning of time, so nobody can say it's right or wrong. I believe that it's better not to eat animals, but Daddy [Grandma and Grandpa, Joey down the street, etc] believes that because people are omnivores, and we CAN eat animals and some people like the taste, that it's okay to eat a little bit of meat. We only get our meat from people who were very nice to the cow and were careful that it didn't suffer too much. Mommy doesn't eat eggs or dairy either because sometimes the people who are taking care of the chickens and the cows aren't very nice to them. But Daddy gets his eggs from people who just let the chickens run around and eat grain, and they're happy. So, everybody gets to decide for themselves what they think is okay to eat. If you want to try eating meat [or dairy, or eggs] then you can. But remember, that meat came from an animal."
Or something like that. Hehe...
So, tell me what you think.
