Vegetarian Diet for KidsNov 13, 2013
Vegetarian diets can be perfectly healthy for kids of all ages, even infants, but it's important to not let them be a french-fry-vegetarian, which focuses only on not eating meat. Beans, tofu, diary, and egg should always be present in a healthy vegetarian diet. Registered dietitian Dr. Julie Metos from the University of Utah explains the different types of vegetarian diets and tells you which ones your child shouldn't be on. She also discusses the vegetarian alternatives for protein and nutrition that comes from meat.
