Kids and Pescetarianism

by Gavan on January 7, 2009

This morning on The Today Show there was a piece about the influx of children becoming Pescetarians, some on their own accord. Google Pescetarian and you’ll get about 62,000 results, including Wikipedia & dictionary results such as this: A pescetarian diet excludes land animals and birds, but includes fish, mollusks, and crustaceans in addition to fruits, vegetables, plants, legumes, nuts, and grains. Just like the girl in the video, The Missus had the same reaction around the same age and to this day she is still follower of this lifestyle (and she’s still kicking) though she prefers to call herself a Fishetarian, go figure.
Did somebody mention catfish tacos?

I too saw the article on TV and although not a true pescetarian as your wife is, I would choose fish over meat on most occasions. My favourite restaurants will always feature heavily on fish dishes. Although I sometimes worry about the mercury in the fish and try to keep clear of the worst affected. However my own children had a great aversion to anything fishy, and many years on I still have one daughter who will not touch it.
