CNN Discusses Young Vegans and Nutrition

vegan kids CNN

CNN has an excellent article that talks about young vegans. It features a mother and daughter that are both vegan and discusses some of the common concerns parents have about vegan children getting adequate nutrition for their growing bodies.

The article has lots of useful information and reiterates some important facts about vegan nutrition. It includes the mandatory “take a B12 supplement” warning, but also highlights how a vegan diet is associated with a lower risk of death from ischemic heart disease, and vegans also appear to have lower overall cancer rates, lower blood pressure and lower rates of hypertension than non-vegans.

Remember, the American Dietetic Association (ADA) has advised that well-planned vegan diets are appropriate for all phases of life. In addition, the ADA projects that the number of vegetarians in the United States is expected to increase over the next decade. YAY!
