ABSTRACT
The article offers tips on how to raise a vegetarian child. A child needs adequate amounts of calories and fat to grow. To boost intake, use energy-rich, less saturated fats such as olive and canola oil. Soy products, legumes, and nuts provide protein; broccoli, tahini, fortified soy milk and dried figs are nondairy sources of calcium. Vitamin B12 is found only in animal products, so parents should load up on all three with fortified cereals, veggie burgers and breads.
