What is a vegetarian?

My daughter came home from school today and announced that she plans to be a vegetarian. I know that means she won't eat meat, but I'm not sure what else it involves. What is a vegetarian?

It's usually a person who does not eat meat, sausage, ham, hot dogs, etc. Offer fish to your daughter.

It's a person who does not eat meat, and sometimes other animal products.

It's just that... A lot if people are confused between the differences of vegetarians and vegans. A vegetarian doesn't eat meat, but eats other animal products like eggs, milk and cheese. A vegan however, doesn't eat meat or anything that comes from animals.
