    because it's yummy, high in nutritional value which I find important, my children will not touch tofu or lentils and I would much prefer them to eat meat to get their protein than starve! I could t imagine my diet without meat.. We eat a type of meat every night... DF would be very confused and maybe sad if I served him a main dinner without some sort of meat!!! LOL

    I go through fazes where i do and do not eat meat, same with milk products i go through fazes of no milk products, or eggs or meat, then i go through fazes where i like to eat meat.

    WHY because i want to eat meat, or because i dont want to eat meat i dont feel the need to justify it any more thanthat and nor should you.

    My DD doesnt have meat at all, why because she cant eat

    I was after something more than because it tastes nice. Thank you to those who answered without becoming rude. Much appreciated.

    Call me crabby tonight, but who gives a shiz what is an acceptable reason for not eating meat? Your body, you put what you want into it. I think the issue arises when people get defensive when they are asked about their choices. A simple 'wow, you dont eat meat? Why not? Its delicious!' seems to come across to the vegetarian as 'omg you weird alien freak, why wouldnt you eat meat? What the hell is wrong with you?'

    Really? I don't think that's unreasonable at all!

    I eat it and feed it to my kids because...

    I like the taste

    I find it easier to get the nutrition I need from it.

    It's easier when we're out and about, visiting friends etc.

    It's what I've been brought up with

    I find it difficult to feel satisfied after a meal without meat in it.

    Because I enjoy having a varied diet. I have travelled a lot and food has always been a big part of exploring places.

    I love tofu and veggies etc - could easily live on a vege diet but prefer not to. I don't eat meat everyday.

    DD is only 4.5mo but when she's eating proper meals I'll give her meat. I want her to have a varied diet too and enjoy lots of different tastes.

    I've got 3 friends IRL who are vegetarian. When I found out that they were, I asked out of curiosity. I asked if it was because of the taste or cruelty to animals. Two them said because of the cruelty to animals and one said both. No big deal to me, their reasons don't have to be acceptable to anyone but themselves.

    I eat meat because in *my* opinion, it is healthy.

    I eat a good range of white meat and seafood, and red meat maybe twice a week max.

    I couldn't care less if someone else doesn't eat meat, as long as I can do what I believe is best for me.

    Who are you to class an answer as decent when it comes to people's personal preferences?
