If I had kids, I wouldn't even think of feeding them a strict vegan diet. That just goes against all common sense.

Even though there are apparently more benefits than downside risks? Vegans know they need to supplement B12 and calcium. My daughter has been Vegan for a couple of years now, and she's never been healthier. She used to suffer from hypertension and low iron, but no more. It's actually pretty impressive. And yes, she is a new mother, but as a part of an active vegan community, she knows to watch for any problems.  My biggest concern is that young Casper may grow up with food allergies due to a lack of desensitisation.

/No, it's not for me. Pass the steak.

I'm not a nutritionist, but my take-away in general, is that while pills can be helpful, they are not food. I personally take a shiat ton of supplements, but they are no substitute for good nutrition, something particularly important for growing kids. I am sure I read recently, that fish oil pills are much less helpful than actually eating fish.

As long as you're making special vegan food for your cat, you should be willing to do the same for your kids.

This farking society can't keep running on meat.  I'm not a vegan, but I fully acknowledge the science that we just can't keep going like this, and we need to start somewhere.

Two words: Chicken and fish.

Your choices are not veganism or beef. There's a whole wide world of nutritious, sustainable, low fat, high protein food out there.

Stop letting The Beef Council tell you your choices are either a hamburger or raw broccoli and soy milk.

Hamburger trifecta in play?

/not that there is anything wrong with that
//you vegan fascists can fark off, and keep farking off until you are out of off to fark.
///as for people with religious dietary restrictions that you want to impose on me: let me finish my bacon wrapped shrimp & cheese dusted in garlic.

Reminds me of articles a few years ago where food restrictions faddists were puzzles that their adolescent kids were not growing.

Seems like vegans murder their own children by malnutrition every couple of years.

This.  And we can let go of the concept that meals need to be meat-centric as well.

But this isn't about child-bearing women, it's about children.

We can keep eating meat just fine, we just have to stop burning fossil fuel to do so (like most of the meat produced where I live).

Every once in a while, I'll do a meat-centric meal for a special occasion, or if a really choice cut is on sale.

Otherwise, I cook with meat for flavor and protein content, with the goal being that the combination of meat, beans/legumes/nuts, cheese/yogurt, and seeds/grains in a serving of whatever I'm making provides at least 25 g of protein.

Not surprisingly, the real finding was that shiatty parents have unhealthy kids.  Vegan parents have healthier kids than vegetarian because they choose better foods.  They vegetarians are just giving their kids whatever processed crap they find with "vegetarian" on the box.

I'd be willing to bet the healthiest children of all would be the vegan kids with a supplemental protein every day such as a glass of milk, egg, or piece of plain grilled chicken.  Specifically, they would keep to their normal vegan diet and only receive their animal product in it's mostly native form (no cheese, butter, nuggets, etc.).

If you have to take supplements on your "healthy" diet it's not healthy

Anyone who puts their child on a vegan diet should be arrested for abuse. F*cked up idiots.

I can absolutely do the vegetarian thing, but never vegan. I hope to never give up cheese milk or eggs. I mean our chickens lay the eggs and the choice is between chucking it into the woods eating it or getting overrun with chickens.

/The duck eggs are better

Beef with the right fat content, cooked just right (browned on the surface, or maybe char-grilled), could very well make a decent meat-on-bread combo.

Then again, it would be better with toppings.
