Today’s Parent: here’s what experts say about quarantining before Christmas so you can see your family

My children announced that they were pescatarians when they were 11 and 10 (a few years apart) and they are now 36 and 39 and still pescatarians. The oldest, a daughter, was also border-line anemic. This is just to say, they are wonderful and healthy. I do want parents to know that being a vegetarian is not always a healthy choice if you are trading meat for junk food and sugar, but it’s a terrific learning moment for understanding plant protein, saturated fat knowledge, and whole food choices.
