I am in 8th grade and have seriously deiced to be a vegetarian. A lot of you are going to say she will just "fall" out of it in a few days, she is not seriously comited, she is to young. Well i am here to say there are a lot of us in my grade who haven't "fell" out of it yet and are doing our best to introduce vegetarianism in to our schools. we don't have a vegetarian option, and we are doing something about that. I have thought about becoming a vegetarian for a very long time since 4th grade and i finally earlier this year did it with a few of my friends. I am also lactose intalorant, making me a very low scale vegetarian that's OK with me i would be a vegan if my parents wouldn't complain! hahaha

Hi there, People aren't here really won't say that, we'll support you. A lot of us went veg very young, my girlfriend for example has been vegan since she was very young.<br><br>

Yep, the main purpose of these board is for support! We even have a teen subforum where you can discuss with other teens the difficulties you may experience going veg at your age and how to get through them!

Hello <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:"><br>
Yeah, you'll find much support here!<br>
I wish you luck on getting your school to have better options. My kids pretty much skipped lunch because it was so bad. The last year they began to have vegetarian options, before you couldn't even get a decent salad.<br>
Remind them of the importance of good nutrition!

i don't think you'll "fall out of it". i became a vegetarian at your age and 14 years later i'm still one. don't listen to the people who tell you it's just a phase

I don't think anyone here would say that. We have quite a few teens here, just check out our teen forum toward the bottom of the main page.
