Hi everyone. I used to post on the birth month boards all the time when my son was first born. He's now a very healthy 5 year old and I need your advice again.
About 6 months ago I changed my own diet to a vegan diet. I was much slower changing my son's diet. Over the past 6 months I have been phasing out meats and dairy (not that he ate that much to begin with) and replacing them with fresh vegetables and fruit and whole grains, beans, nuts, etc. He now eats 75% vegan, 100% vegetarian. We are very committed to a plant-based, whole foods diet, rather than a processed diet.
My son's father (my ex) isn't happy with the new "diet" and thinks it is hurting our son. He said he is willing to "fight" for what he believes in. So my question is, can he take me to court over this? Right now we have shared parenting agreement with each parent getting close to 50% parenting time each week. If he does take me to court, how can I defend a plant-based diet for our son? At least while he is in my care? I'm afraid he's going to try and get full custody over this.
