Hi everyone,<br><br>
I am new here. I became a vegetarian when our oldest daughter was at the age when meat would have been introduced to her diet. I teach in the Detroit Public Schools and when I taught 2nd grade I had a student who was already menstrating<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sick:"> and I didn't want my daughter to have to deal with all those hormones added to her food. I used to be a veg. but got anemic and started again. I ordered the dvd from PeTA and I couldn't even finish watching it. My dh did finish it, and hasn't eaten meat since!<br><br><br><br>
We have skeptics that tell us our kids need to eat meat, but they are proof you don't! Our oldest is just about 2 and is in the 95th percentile for height, and our baby who is 4 months is off the charts!<br><br><br><br>
I am looking forward to getting some great advice and recipes!

"I teach in the Detroit Public Schools"....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/notworthy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":wayne:"> Stand firm over there. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
and...anemia being a veg issue = a myth. You can get plenty of veg iron/protein! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:">
