Vegan Diet for Kids?

An article posted today on MSNBC has already garnered lots of attention from vegan supporters and cynics surrounding whether children should be taught to eat a vegan diet. Despite the fact that the typical American diet is high in saturated fats and considerably less balanced than the average vegan diet, there are still many cynics purporting that a vegan or vegetarian diet simply isn’t “balanced” enough.



I’d like to hear your thoughts on this, should children be fed a vegan or vegetarian diet? Do you raise your children on a certain diet?

  1. If parents are conscious into letting their kids eat healthy, they can opt for the lacto-ovo vegetarian diet instead of the vegan diet. The vegan diet lacks Vit. B12, which is needed for the formation of red blood cells and for the well-being of the nervous system. This is so because Vit. B12 can only be found in animal sources, that is why vegans take Vit. B12 supplements. The lacto-ovo vegetarian diet is much more healthier because the child can still get the benefit of Vit. B12 from dairy products.
