Catherine Posted November 8, 2012 Share Posted November 8, 2012 My almost 16 yo is about 6' 1" and weighs about 135 pounds. He announced 2 weeks ago he is vegetarian. He's doing this in part, he says, to make himself eat more veggies, which IMO is really admirable. He has always been extremely picky and truly has barely eaten a veggie in his life. He just has a lot of trouble with some flavors and textures. Lest you assume I am a pathetically wishy-washy parent, my other two eat pretty much everything that's not nailed down. That's one reason I believe this ds when he says he "just can't" try something. So. Do I just go on as usual and let him figure this out for himself? Last night I made a dish I know he loves, tuna pasta, and a salad and he refused the pasta (he apparently told me he isn't eating fish but I got it wrong) and just ate a green salad for dinner! I'm really worried he will get much thinner on this regimen. Then again, that is, no kidding, the first time in his entire life he's eaten green salad. He did have some ice cream. Do I just serve extra dessert and let it go? Sign me-way too worried. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
