Teen Vegetarian - A Parent's Dilemma: Will
Your Vegetarian Teenager Grow Up Healthy?

Will becoming a teen vegetarian affect your young one's health? Yes, and no. Clear cut answer huh? Yes, if you teen vegetarian follows a healthy diet filled with varieties of foods such as grains, vegetables, fruits, soy products etc. See our healthy diet food guide here. No, if your teen choose to eat a lot of junk food and fast food as his/her main diet, and none of the 'good stuff'.

More and more teenagers are becoming vegetarians, and that creates a dilemma for many parents who do not fully understand a vegetarian diet. The biggest worry: will my teen get enough nutrition during his/her growing years? Yes, they can.

You will see in the diet guide that recommended meats or alternatives comprise a very small portion of a balanced daily diet - only 2 to 3 servings per day. While grains and veggies each recommend 5 to 12 servings per day. On top of that, meat alternatives such as beans and soy products provide just as good a source of protein and other essential nutrients.

Humans are meant to be vegetarian. :)

So how can you ensure your vegan teens get the proper nutrition? First, follow some good ol'common sense. Serve a lot of vegetables, gains (ie. pastas, rice, breads), fruits, and work in some delicious soy products. Out of recipe ideas or not sure how to cook delicious vegetarian dishes? Here's an excellent source.

And if you're really stressed out about your teen vegetarians health and diet, visit a dietitian, and get some meal planning advice that will satisfy a growing teenagers nutritional needs.

Another challenge you will face is cooking something that will satisfy everyone at the dinner table. This requires some work and creativity. Serve foods that's appealing to everyone and will be enjoyed by your vegetarian teen. Here's a great place to start. You don't have to completely makeover your regular diet to accommodate your vegetarian teenager - just make some small changes to the foods you serve. Serve a mixture of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. The link above provides an excellent source for healthy, delicious vegetarian cooking in under 30 minutes.
