When your child wants to become a vegetarian

When your child wants to become a vegetarian | Food, Culture, Recipes | Scoop.it
Your child has decided that they want to become a vegetarian. What do you do? Here are some practical tips for parents.
Eileen Lai's insight:

This is exactly how I felt when my daughter told me that she wants to become a vegetarian.  however much I respect the philosophy behind it, I cannot deny the stress and worries I have moving onward.  Questions like 'What am I going to cook for her?' when the other sibling wants total meat diet; 'Is this going to affect her health even more since she's already not eating much?'; 'Will she have enough energy to do all the things on her ever-busy schedules?'.  As a mom, I want to be supportive, but I don't know if I should persuade her to be a little more flexible on her diet rather.  I like the idea of being a pescatarian or a flexitarian, or even a pollotarian.  As I am typing at this moment, I have been thinking of implementing a meat-free day during the week, and that will be my baby-step suggestion to the rest of the family.  Definitely, I have to concur that eating less meat but more vege and fruits is always good.

Eileen Lai's insight:

I have to recommend this documentary to everybody who are interested in the Chinese culture, its tradition, and cuisine. Indeed I saw this on TV and was looking for it online to watch a second time, or more. This documentary captures many aspects of the lives of Chinese living in modern China, yet growing their own crops and preparing them for authentic traditional chinese recipes.  It's totally interesting and educational.
