Vegetarianism among kids has gone more mainstream in the past decade.
A nationwide survey by the Vegetarian Resource Group found that 3
percent of American youth, or about 1.4 million people between ages 8
and 18, are vegetarian; that is, they avoid meat, fish and poultry.
That's up from 2 percent 10 years ago. Celebrities' meat-free
preferences may be helping to popularize it: Carrie Underwood, Joaquin
Phoenix and Christian Bale (although he says he's not as adherent as
he used to be) all famously chose the vegetarian path in their youth.
