My 10 year old claims she wants to be a vegetarian

O.K. so I have a 10yr old girl, she is very mature for age, but I still don't feel she is old enough to make a decision effecting her health. My husband tells me we should just ride it out and try to support her, but I am not sure how to when I don't agree the choice. I am not saying vegetarianism is bad, but the only reason she tells she wants to be is because she dosen't want to see animals murdered. She has been a meat eater her whole life as the whole family is, and this all started after she heard her father and I talk about an old friend who happened to be vegetarian. I need help in how to deal with this, I am truely at a loss and now because of my lack of support there is way to much tension in the house between everyone, please any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
