Is your child a veggie?

For whatever reason, maybe your family is a veggie, maybe they care about protecting animals, but there is nothing to be alarmed about if your child becomes a veggie.

There are certain things you need to consider in the transition period.

Special care must be taken when serving kids and teens a vegetarian diet, especially if it doesn't include dairy and egg products. And as with any diet, you'll need to understand that the nutritional needs of kids change as they grow.

My 8 year old daughter is newly vegan and my teenage sons are omni. I'm more worried about the omni teens and their diet than my DD's.

There are things you need to consider if you child is an omni too. Like cows milk is for calves not for human children and eggs are full of cholesterol.

My grand daughter is being brought up vegan (although she can choose to eat non vegan food if she wants to.) Her mother is a vegan her father a part time vegetarian.

At 4 she could swim across an olympic pool and by 6 she could do 2 lengths.

Again, congratulations on and for your daughter
