This does beg the question whether or not humans ever really have to eat ANYTHING that was ever alive? Why limit it to animals when replicators are just as capable of replicating plants. There could be an entire social movement on Earth advocating complete human removal from the food chain.
There mus still be a demand for actual food, since replicated food is often said to be inferior to the genuine article. Though I suppose there might be a minority who prefer to eat only replicated food.
Yes.. but truthfully a lot of people today have diets quite removed from actual food. Sometimes I read the "what are you eating" thread in Misc and it depresses me, the days upon days of processed crap people ingest. Europeans posting there notably eat much better. People gave up real food very quickly when processed, easy, instant food was in front of them.

I think the incredible ease of replicators and the ability to make everything exactly to your taste and yet not have it bad for you will pretty much wipe out cooking the way making your own clothes is now reduced to hobby level. The reason people bitched about Neelix's cooking was not because it was terrible but because it was out of their control.. they have been spoiled by always having everything exactly to their tastes.

I imagine kids growing up and the parent deciding to have roast beef and vegies for dinner.. and everyone gets their own plate of this because the replicator has saved everyone's preferences. Little Johnny's potatoes are much more buttery than his siblings, Dad's roast is rare and Mom's is well done.. you wouldn't even have the simple lack of control involved in leaving the roast in the oven for too long and so tonight it is slightly less to your taste.

I always assumed soft drinks weren't shown on Star Trek because of product placement reasons, much like having certain kinds of rock music would date the show. But considering how Quark once mentioned root beer, it was always there, lurking unseen in the background.
Well, there are ways around product placement which many TV shows often do and Trek has done in the past. Next time you're watching Enterprise's Carbon Creek, pay close attention to the ketchup and mustard. Although it looks like the Heinz label, you'll notice the brand name written on it is in fact Fines.

Ignoring time travel episodes the first indication we get that people still drink cola in the future is Enterprise's Terra Prime, and even that is just on a list of drinks. The only time cola gets a direct mention is the second last time to feature the Prime Universe. Personally, I find that shocking.

That Budweiser survives is more shocking.

I'm sure there would be colonies of luddites who wanted to embrace a lifestyle which included real meat, whether for religious reasons or not.
Add to religious reasons the fact that certain species' populations can actually get out of control if there is not regulated hunting. Deer populations in some areas, for instance. If you have to kill something, it shouldn't go to waste; that meat should be eaten. You'd definitely still have a reason for venison to be eaten, at the very least, if not other types of meat.
