Bacon comes from pigs

Postby OnceHarmony on Wed Dec 07, 2011 12:55 pm

Recently while eating bacon DD asked us if bacon came from pigs. With trepidation I told her yes. She said yummy and kept eating. No vegetarian here. She knows chicken is from chickens and beef is from cows and she is fine with it. I thought for sure she would be a crying mess when she found out but nope. Great, now I'm craving bacon.

My 4 year old son is big into eating "killed animals" right now. He asks at restaurants if he can have some "killed meat". I can't get him to ask for a hamburger without saying that it is a dead cow. He seems to delight in this! He was reading a book to himself the other day with a rabbit in it, and I overheard him saying "That rabbit could be a killed meat dinner."

I'm glad your daughter didn't have a panic over the concept of bacon from pigs. I think kids don't quite get the process of pig/cow to meat and can separate the ones they see in a field or at a barnyard from the ones that will get eaten.

Our 4 year-old dd maintains that while we eat chickens, we don't eat "chickens-that-run-yuck" so it's all good.

At least yours accepts that. Mine insists that ham is from pigs but bacon is from cows :lol:
