She'd better not be giving him pudding. How can he have any pudding if he doesn't eat his meat!?

TuteTibiImperes: You don't force exclusionary diets on five year olds unless there is a medically necessary reason.  If the father isn't vegetarian he has every right to serve meat when his son is in his care, and I suppose the mother has the right to serve him vegetarian fare when he is in hers as long as it isn't resulting in health concerns for the kid.

What the hell are you doing in a Fark thread saying crap like this?  Is this some new variety of inverse-trolling where you post something reasonable just to see how many people will flip out?

AverageAmericanGuy: If she's still breastfeeding the boy, I'm not going to argue with her. There's no need for a kid to eat meat if he can consume breast milk. It contains all the nutrients babies need.

Aww Jesus.  You didn't even bait a hook; you're dragging your dick in the water.

robohobo: I get nearly all of my vegetables from 2 glasses of juiced veggies(w/pulp) a day. Aside from peas, corn, potatoes, and tomatoes(a fruit, I know), I find veggies fairly gross. Both taste and texture, and I've tried lots of vegetables lots of ways. I find it way easier to beer-chug my two mugs of veggie blargh than having to eat those colorful pieces of foulness. Meat and potatoes and bread is where its at.

Potatoes are a vegetable. MIND FREAK!

The only questions the judge really has to ask himself in this case are does the kid like fish sticks? Does he like them in the mouth? What is this kid, some kind of gay fish? Nttawwt.

Ugh. These kinds of threads always have me at war with myself.

1) Mom FTFA is a twat, plain and simple.
2) Kids can get by perfectly fine on a vegetarian diet if done properly, like any other human.
3) When people forgo meat because they just don't like it, I'm slightly puzzled, but whatever.
4) When people forgo meat because OMG IT'S MURDER, I wish they'd shut the f*ck up.
5) When people forgo meat for religious or health reasons, more power to them.
6) I f*cking love meat of all kinds, and yet find myself eating healthy vegetarian or vegan meals at least half the time because my body appreciates the conscious increase in nutrients, and vegetables are crazy delicious. And if you have even the slightest ability to cook, getting enough protein and fat is a cinch.
7) I f*cking love meat of all kinds, but people who INSIST on meat at every single meal are twats.
8) Entire cultures have sustained themselves on largely vegetarian diets for millenia and gotten by just fine. Try eating their cuisines sometime, it's generally fantastic.
9) The next hippie who gives me a dirty look when I tear into a rare ribeye is getting stabbed with my fork.

tl;dr People on all sides of the veg issue can often be concern trolling assholes.

HindiDiscoMonster: Here is a simple test:

Do you have to use vitamins/artificial means to suppliment your nutrition?

YES = you're doing it wrong
NO = thumbs up


supplemented diet = incomplete diet.

Balance of intake in regards to foodstuffs encourages the body's metabolism to remain constant. Stability of metabolism helps to ward off diabetes, for a start, and helps maintain mental stability.

My (hypothetical) kids will be free to choose to become vegan at any point of their lives, but not without a trip to a nutritionist doctor, and regular blood testing.

I cook for my household, catering for vegans (thus, myself, eating a 98% vegan diet), but you'll prize my bacon, cheese, steak, cheese, venison and bacon from my cold, dead, but well-fed hands. I simply get horribly depressed without meat and cheese.

Forcing a child to be vegan from birth means that you have effectively removed meat from the list of their easily digestible foodstuffs befor they have any legal say in the matter - when they come to the age of 18 and maybe want to try it themselves, they'll be most likely violently ill as their system rejects the animal proteins. (anyone who claims that this is not cruelty should be hung by their wrists and be bled to death from cuts to their soles)

We, carnivores, must continue to protect and assert our right to kill other sentient beings and eat their flesh on the Internet. For if we fail to continue, friends, I feel that the vegans will begin to assert control. We cannot let this happen. We should contemplate creating an 11th Amendment: The Right to Eat Meat

That child is going to grow up very, very stunted if not incredibly ill. There have been repeat cases of children being permanently damaged by psycho parents enforcing this kind of diet. Growing bodies need protein and dairy to properly assemble themselves. They are growing muscle and bone, if you don't give them the raw materials you are harming your kid.

Piscetarian? Fine, I'll go with it. No red meat? Okay, sure, some religions do that, no harm have some fowl. No pork? Okay. No meat at all?! Insanity.

Do whatever you want to your body but if you force choices on someone else's body you're a nutter.

/hope the kid's dad introduces him to the wonder of proper protein
//hell make it organic free range protein just to be a dick about it
