I hope this is the correct place to write this.
I've practiced vegetarianism for most of my adult life and now veganism for the last 2 years. I plan on following veganism for the rest of my life.
I have been watching my now 2 year old grandson 2 times per week since he was about 6 months old. Lucky grandma!BUT, since I believe that eating dairy and meat are detrimental to one's health, it distresses me greatly sometimes that my adult sons, daughter-in-law and 3 grandsons all eat meat and dairy. It especially bothers me to see my youngest 2 year old grandson being fed chicken, organic beef,fish, all kinds of cheeses, and quite a bit of milk. I have been mostly quiet and respectful of their eating habits but sometimes it seems like more than I can deal with.
I'm looking for someone in a similar situation, (I'm guessing there are many!) and am interested in how they handle this.
