whatever you do - do not give up. keep being the example for your son. is your son overweight? i think you mentioned your wife was. maybe you're right - maybe you need to stop pushing so much & back off. as time goes by and your son gets old enough to read and understand better maybe print out some articles and leave them lying around. children are curious and he may read some of them out of curiosity. it totally flabberghasts me that a mother would not read and learn everything possible to help her own child be healthy and thrive. i don't care if people are fat but when they become parents they need to set good examples and model healthy eating and exercise behaviors. other wise kids do not have a chance. thank goodness you son has got you!

Q: Is it healthy for children to be on a vegan diet?
A : A well-balanced vegan diet is safe and healthy for any stage of life, including infancy, childhood, adolescence, and during pregnancy. Plant-based diets can easily provide all essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that growing children and mothers-to-be need. Simply have a variety of whole grains, beans, vegetables, and fruits, and be sure to include a daily source of vitamin B12, such as any common multiple vitamin. Plant-based diets have many important health advantages: Vegans enjoy a reduced risk of heart disease, diabetes, and some types of cancer. Since eating habits are established in early childhood, choosing a vegan diet can give your child the opportunity to enjoy a variety of nutritious foods—and to carry those healthy eating habits into adulthood.
