VEGETARIAN DIET IN CHILDREN
Dana-Teodora Anton-Paduraru, Carmen Oltean, Laura Mihaela Trandafir and Amalia Maria Mineata
Vegetarianism may have implications on the growth of children and adolescents. There are different types of vegetarian diets: some may be suitable for children, other deficient in essential nutrients. If a vegetarian diet is done properly and includes fortified foods it can promote health and reduce risk for major chronic diseases. Restriction or exclusion of products of animal nature can lead to low intake of essential nutrients
