    Default Why do you eat meat?

    As a vego parent of a vego child, I am often asked why I don't eat meat and why I choose that for my child as well. Most of the time my answers aren't considered good enough and people judge.

    So why do you eat meat, and why do you feed it to your kids?

    I never get a decent answer to that.

    Honestly. I like the taste of meat. We don't eat too much, and I try to eat as ethically as possible.

    Because its delicious and yummy and I couldn't imagine not having it. yummmmy. I hate veggies and I dislike all those odd things you'd have to eat to get your protein and other stuff you get from meat. I feed it to my kids because its what I cook and if they dont like what I cook they can go hungry

    Because I like the taste of it. It's yum. The only meat my children eat is mince. I give lean mince to them once or twice a week with rice and veges because I believe it has good nutritional value.

    If they ate steak or lamb or chicken, I'd feed them that too.

    ETA - I get my meat from Aussie farmers direct and it is so much nicer than other places!

    I like the taste of it.

    It's easier than being a vego.

    It's a good source of protein and if I had to get all my protein from legumes/tofu/nuts/dairy I'd go insane.

    I try to only eat free-range meat though

    I eat meat because it is so delicious and versatile. I love roast beef,steak, roast duck, chicken, ham, turkey, fish. I feel hungry just answering this thread! I don't eat a lot of meat though and sometimes I'll go a couple of days without. Coming up to Christmas I'd hate to not eat all the delicious food on offer!

    Dh was brought up vego and we tried it a couple of years ago but I found it very difficult.

    Because it tastes yum, I offer it to my child and if he doesnt want to eat it I won't force him to eat it, but he does and he loves it.

    I like the taste.

    It has nutritional value that comes easily in meat, where I think I'd struggle to get the nutrition from another source.

    I've been brought up eating meat.

    It makes things easy when eating out/ eating at friends houses.
