    I don’t have kids but I’ve noticed that all of my nieces and nephews have gone through a stage in their childhood where they refused meat. It seemed to pass though after time. I’m a vegetarian so I would love it if they all remained veg! Haha… But alas their parents aren’t so neither are they for now.

    I was this way all of my life and only started trying meat when I was about 18. I will eat certain things now but don’t really care for meat and would prefer to only cook vegetarian meals, but my husband likes meat.

    i meant to vote yes, but i accidentally voted for impossible. i have a cousin who has never liked meat, except for hot dogs. not really sure why hot dogs are acceptable to her, but whatever, haha.

    My cousin’s a natural vegetarian but only because the mom (my aunt) is a vegetarian herself before pregnancy. So, my cousin cannot have any meat; a maid tried feeding my cousin fish or chicken, my cousin got really sick.

    Yes, this can happen.

    I never had a taste for meat, only ate as a kid because my parents coerced (in a loving way) me to. It was never in my list of favorite foods. I stopped eating meat once I learned to cook for myself in high school. My husband grew up in a vegetarian home and didn’t realize that meat was an option until later in childhood, when he went to friend’s houses or to McDonalds for a birthday party. He ate hamburgers because he thought they were the same thing as veggie burgers! He hasn’t eaten meat (on purpose) in probably over 20 years though.

    My friend used to be able to eat meat but then suddenly she couldn’t and it made her really poorly. So I suppose you can be if your body doesn’t like it.

    My childhood friend has always really hated meat. Her mother made her eat it when we were little but I think she stopped when we were about 12. So I guess it’s possible… I’m not sure she’s a “natural vegetarian” though, we met when we were 6 and she’s always loved animals so I assumed that was the reason she didn’t like meat. She’s a dog trainer now 🙂

    I had an elderly patient once who had an aversion to meat. She said she never liked it and refused to eat it. So yes, I think it’s definitely possible.
