Are We There Yet?

No meat, please

About one in 200 kids are vegetarian, according to estimates based on a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study.

In this Associated Press story published earlier this week, Mike Stobbe reported the findings as well as the growing trend of vegetarianism among adolescents.

Some vegetarians have told me that they were aware of their aversion to meat at an early age. We know several preschoolers who are vegetarian and whose parents also don’t eat meat.

My 2-year-old, who loves tofu and eggs, refuses to eat chicken, pork and beef. Do you think she’s really a vegetarian or just a picky eater at this point? How do you tell the difference?
