Yep, got to accept two things. They aren't your kids, and your son-in-law is a fkn idiot. I have 5 grandchildren and I'm telling you, this ain't the hill you want to die on.
Give me Liberty or I will take it myself.

Before you criticize a man you should walk a mile in his shoes, that way when you criticize him you will be a mile away and you will have his shoes.

Those children are still growing! He is putting them in an unhealthy situation. If you don't feed children meat-based proteins, they become ill or, at the very least, weak. He isn't doing them any favors...And neither is you daughter!

PLEASE! Google childhood nutrition & print it for your daughter. She needs to defy her SO on this one...For the health of your grandchildren.

Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ.
2. The American G.I.
One died for your soul,
the other for your freedom

Alienate HIM, and your daughter will be next, then the grandkids.

Not saying I agree with their personal choices, especially the Santa thing, but conflict is a no win situation.

Stay close to the kids, and whatever happens, you'll have a life long solid relationship with THEM as they grow, mature, and make their OWN choices.

Just IMO.
I agree with night train, while i do not agree with children being raised into vegenisim or that santa isnt real. its up to the parents to do whats best and you to love the children and spoil them whenevr you can. i would recomend having a chat wit ha non biased child nutritionist or DR to see if there are any issues that are a result of the life style out side of being bullied in school unless they live in san francisco.

personally i would take the kids out on a sunday without mom and dad around and treat them to a burger and fries and get them to keep it your secret

I know it sucks but it's not your call to make. You have to let your daughter and son in law raise their kids the way they see fit. I'm sure you wouldn't have appreciated your father in law forcing some of his beliefs on your daughter.
