A vegetarian woman was angry when her former husband fed her son meat.

The father of Bergamo, Italy, refused to comply with his former wife’s request to serve her son vegetarian foods.

The man filed a complaint in court, saying that his son’s mother made the decision to put her son on a macrobiotic diet without consulting him.

The man told the court that the diet put his child’s health at risk. The father took the child to McDonald’s and fed his son meat and dairy on weekends, when he had custody of the child.

The child’s father complained that his son was not being given an adequate diet, which consisted of whole grains, cereals and vegetables.

The mother of the child told the court that her son suffers from stomach aches after the weekends with his father.

The court sided with the father, and ordered the vegetarian mother to cook meat for her son at least once a week.
