Fabien and I are meat eaters. We've munched on everything from horse, flying fox to shaggy yak. He's a Frenchman with an adventurous palate, and hey - I have Chinese DNA - the only thing with 4 legs that I don't eat is a table.
Of course we've been blessed with our daughter who absolutely LOVES fruits and vegetables and hates meat. Perhaps she is trying to right the karmic balance of her carnivorous parents.
We have been trying out chicken, beef and various other meats with Sophie which she doesn't seem to be hot about at all. She'll accept beef broth as long as you blend lots of yummy spinach in it. But anything with just greens gets gobbled up pronto. Peas, spinach, green beans are great. Carrots and pumpkin are not so yummy but are acceptable. She can't get enough of apple compote, bananas and pears.
Just to clarify I am pretty happy to have a herbivorous daughter, but since she doesn't do dairy products and the milk factory will cease operations once mommy goes back to work, my only doubt is whether a vegan diet is okay for my baby brahmin? A quick online search seems to suggest that plants lack vitamin B12.
So what do you guys think? Is it a problem if she hates meat? If it is then how do you think we should introduce meat to her? It's the stuff of parental late night angst...
