Three, it may stay that way, we might have one more. Who knows?
No way! If you guys eat meat occasionally while out she will have exposure to it at some point anyway if she chooses to eat it. But I don't see the point if you eat no meat in your home/dining out in restaurants, etc. There is no need to be contrived in your childs diet. Eating comes naturally.

I don't have any doubt that nature plays a large role in human development. However, I think that it is good to think objectively about that show. They certainly didn't pick the twins that were living completely different lives, and I'm sure they minimized the differences between the twins they featured. IMO, I think there is a good balance between nature and nurture. Doesn't make for very interesting TV though.
