Speaking out of place? I'm simply speculating on what is the modern world. I work at a childcare centre and its my job to ensure that my staff don't feed Buddhist vegetarian children foods containing animal products, ginger or garlic. It's just a fact of life. Those children shouldn't be told that they aren't healthy simply because they don't eat meat. We teach the kids about healthy eating and healthy living. If children can respect that another child doesn't eat meat because of their religion, or allergies, or beliefs... then I don't understand why adults can't.
