Hi...I have been some form of vegetarian/vegan since I was 17 years old. I had no intention of forcing my son to be a vegetarian since I choose this life style for very personal reasons. I did not intend to ever fix or feed him red meat, but that was as far as I was going to take it. I, however, cannot get him to eat any sort of meat, and he won't drink Milk. He will eat soup made with chk. broth, and he will eat yogurt and cheese, but that is it. I have not been concerned about it until recently. He loves tofu and soy milk, and other soy products...but "they" say that you are supposed the limit the amount of soy that small children eat, and he just doesn't seem to gain any weight, and while he's not losing it either...he's still very small. I wonder if anyone out there is doing this with any sort of success? I am not against having a veg. child, but I could deffinately use some advice. I checked the vegan group, but they don't have many members or many threads, and the group hasn't been active since Jan....Any help would be greatly appreciated!
