our family transition: vegetarianism to meat-eating

From conception until my son was 3 and daughter was just over 1, my children were raised as pescatarians while I was a strict vegetarian. In October 2011 we made a slow and very conscientious decision to include some meat into our family diet. 

You can read about why we made this transition and the rules we've made to ensure we still eat as ethically as possible here as well as scroll through to the end of these archives to find information about how we raised our children vegetarian for their first few years of life.

We still eat a largely vegetarian diet (about 80% vegan, 10% vegetarian and 10% meats) so be sure to check out the recipe section to your right, the majority of those are vegetarian and vegan.

Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have.

You were in my thoughts the other day. I was wondering if the transition is going well. I hope it is! :)

Hi, I'm a mama to a two year old and we're all vegetarian. I'm really interested to read all of your posts regarding your switch but none of the links work (suspended domain). Is there any chance that you'll make this information available again? Thanks!

Hi Wendy, Thanks for your comment. I have fixed the links up. Scroll through to posts dated anytime before November 2011 and you'll find lots on our family life as vegetarians. Thanks, Meagan.
