It'd seem wrong to make a child follow a certain diet or lifestyle unless it was for their health or something.
That's why it's a good thing Bethenny Frankel’s daughter, Bryn, chose to be vegetarian all on her own!
"It’s actually been her choice. She just never wants meat."
So Bethenny doesn't necessarily make traditional meals, even for Thanksgiving, saying:
"We don’t have an iron-clad tradition by any stretch! But one thing that has changed is the focus on what I make because my daughter Bryn is a vegetarian. We still have a turkey because my husband wants one, but I’ve adapted a lot of our dishes for her."
So even though her daughter is vegetarian, it doesn't mean she never has treats!
"I’m not a hero. As long as Bryn’s eating real food, I never feel bad. And that goes for treats, too. We try to get all the healthy stuff in so she can have ice cream, too, or a cookie. Everyone should get to indulge a little bit every day."
We think feeding your daughter healthy food she wants to eat and letting her having a treat now and again totes makes you a hero!!
Way to keep your family healthy, Bethenny!
