I'm in the same position as you, except I only have one child. :) I too am nursing an 8 month old and I am strongly feeling the need to change my diet to a plant-based diet. For an omnivore, I eat very healthily and am in pretty good shape, considering that I have a baby. My husband, on the other hand, is a die-hard carnivore and while he won't interfere with me going vegetarian, he surely isnt' making it an easy transition. My main dilemma is this: he wants our son to drink whole cow's milk and eat meat and I really oppose the idea of giving cow's milk to children ~ I'm also, after reading The Food Revolution, having serious doubts on whether or not to feed my son meat. I guess I just need to hear from some people who are in the same situation and have made the transition smoothly while family members continue to eat meat. What's next?
Thanks for any advice...
