A natural foods chef herself, it's no surprise that Bethenny Frankel is making a food choice for her daughter. On her website, Bethenny wrote about her decision to give baby Bryn a vegetarian diet:
"As far as raising Bryn as a vegetarian, that was a personal choice. 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. 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 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. Her health comes first. Also, if she didn't eat so many beans and good proteins, I might change this approach."
