Bethenny Frankel Is Raising Her Daughter Bryn As A Vegetarian! Would You?

Bethenny, a firm believer in nutrition, has decided to bring up Bryn has a vegetarian, saying that babies are born as ‘clean slates’ and their parents have the choice to raise them in a healthy way. Do you agree?

Although she does not go as far as to say 15-month-old Bryn is a vegan, like Alicia Silverstone‘s three-month-old son Bear Blu, Bethenny Ever After star Bethenny Frankel has revealed that her daughter is and will be raised a vegetarian. Do you agree with this healthy lifestyle for young children?

“As far as raising Bryn as a vegetarian, that was a personal choice,” Bethenny, 40, who avoids meat in her diet writes on her blog. “If Bryn is older and wants something at a party that isn’t vegetarian, I don’t want her to feel ostracized. She’ll find her way. I have eaten raw, vegan, vegetarian etc. and I love the feeling of eating all of those healthy foods and not incorporating meat.”

Bethenny, who is married to Jason Hoppy, adds that a baby is “a beautiful clean slate,” which is why she’s decided to feed Bryn organic foods and try her best to incorporate all of the same foods in her diet.

“If I have to vow to never eat meat again because she starts to notice that I have a piece of turkey bacon, then I may make that sacrifice. I eat almost everything, but I eat a mostly vegetarian diet,” the Skinnygirl mogul explains.

“However, I occasionally eat meat if I’m really craving it or if there is literally nothing else around, but I’m fortunate to love vegetables, grains and all things healthy,” she writes, adding that Bryn is NOT a vegan and still eats dairy products.

“I chose not to have her be vegan because I believe she needs the fat and protein in milk, and sometimes I need her to fill up on organic cheese,” Bethenny says. “Her health comes first. Also, if she didn’t eat so many beans and good proteins, I might change this approach.”

So HollyMoms, do you raise your children as vegetarians or vegans or do you think this diet is too much for a baby? Share your thoughts!
