Listener Lorna: 'Ciara – wondering where people stand on telling their children what meat is or where it comes from. My 5 year oldbeen asking lots of questions recently. Just the other day she was asking me about her chicken nuggets and I decided it was time to answer her honestly but when I told her she was really shocked and got very upset that we eat animals. Now she says she never wants to eat meat again. I’m thinking now maybe I shouldn’t have told her the truth, or at least not until she’s older.  I’m worried she’ll just stop eating meat and fish altogether. How did you listeners deal with this?' Ciara hears from listeners
