  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Kid 
  the  young  of  the  goat.  It  was  much  used  for  food  (Gen.  27:9; 
  38:17;  Judg.  6:19;  14:6).  The  Mosaic  law  forbade  to  dress  a  kid 
  in  the  milk  of  its  dam,  a  law  which  is  thrice  repeated  (Ex. 
  23:19;  34:26;  Deut.  14:21).  Among  the  various  reasons  assigned 
  for  this  law,  that  appears  to  be  the  most  satisfactory  which 
  regards  it  as  "a  protest  against  cruelty  and  outraging  the  order 
  of  nature."  A  kid  cooked  in  its  mother's  milk  is  "a  gross, 
  unwholesome  dish,  and  calculated  to  kindle  animal  and  ferocious 
  passions,  and  on  this  account  Moses  may  have  forbidden  it 
  Besides,  it  is  even  yet  associated  with  immoderate  feasting;  and 
  originally,  I  suspect,"  says  Dr  Thomson  (Land  and  the  Book), 
  "was  connected  with  idolatrous  sacrifices."
