The daughter can get her nutrients without meat but the OP needs to understand that to somebody who has loved meat all their lives, meat is an addiction with a similar holding power to cigarettes. I know, I have been addicted to both and even now I have serious meat cravings. In the past when I tried to be vegetarian, a single fail would put me straight back onto eating meat regularly, in my case because of a polarized mindset. I eventually succeeded reasonably well in becoming vegan by not taking a vegan position but by choosing to explore plant-based foods as much as possible until one day I realized that I had been living with almost no animal products in my diet for nearly a month. I eventually rejected the label vegan beause of the unrealistic expectations many in the vegan community have of those who grew up omnivores - i.e. normal people. We need to accept that being an omnivore doesn't mean being a bad person.Oh c'mon. Let the man have his meat. And your daughter too. She needs all the good nutrient to grow up. And once she's old enough, she can become vegan if she chooses to do so.
