Healthy Vegetarian Kids

Healthy Vegetarian KidsVegetarian foods, which are rich in healthy plant proteins, complex carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, are the best foods for children. They form the foundation of dietary habits that support a lifetime of good health. According to the American Dietetic Association, "Well-planned vegan and other types of vegetarian diets are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including during pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence."

Doctors and researchers have found that children who follow meat-free diets grow up to be healthy and strong. A study of 4,746 Minnesota adolescents published in the journal Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine found that vegetarian kids were more likely than non-vegetarians to meet government standards for several of the most important dietary recommendations.

According to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, "Children who are raised on whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and legumes will have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, and many obesity-related illnesses compared to their counterparts raised on the average American diet."

Imagine a brighter future for the next generation—children who are happier, healthier, and less susceptible to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and food allergies. A vegan diet is the best protection against disease that we can offer our children. And don't they deserve the best
