Course Overview

There is increased interest in reducing intake of animal products. Adolescents in particular are likely to experiment with diet and eager to express their individualism. Are you prepared to provide nutritional care for an adolescent who is a vegetarian or vegan? Scientific evidence suggests a positive relationship between a vegetarian or vegan diet and reduced risk of disease. The stricter the form of vegetarianism, however, the more care must be taken to ensure adequate nutrition. Regardless of food restrictions, a carefully planned vegetarian or vegan diet can be nutritionally adequate and healthful for children of all ages. At the same time, vegetarian and vegan teens who consume large amounts of foods such as soda, pizza, French fries, and ice cream or non-dairy desserts could be putting themselves at higher risk for developing chronic disease from excess fat, sugar, and salt. Learn how to ensure that the diet of a vegetarian or vegan teen will be nutritionally sound.
