9. I'm with you on that one. My wife and I have been vegetarian for 20 years.
Our three daughters, 15, 17 (almost), and 19 are life-long vegetarians by their own choice. The older two sampled some meat when they were young, mostly out of curiosity, but not very much. As soon as they could identify what they were asking to taste, they were allowed to make the decision on their own. The youngest never wanted to try it.
