Vegetarian diets can be "healthful" and "nutritionally adequate," according to the American Dietetic Association. But meeting the nutritional needs of adolescents takes special forethought. Any diet for growing teens should be rich in calcium for building skeletal mass, iron and zinc for brain development and sexual maturation, and protein to achieve maximum height.
I thought this was a very concise list of foods that teens (and really anyone) can use to make sure their own diet is balanced. It also might be a easy thing to show someone who asks where you get certain vitamins and minerals.
