      How do you respond when your teenager announces that they want to be a
      vegetarian?

      Whether it turns out to be just a passing phase or a decision for
      life, look for the opportunities in this challenge.

      The announcement provides a wonderful starting point for them to gain
      a better understanding about foods and nutrients. Their growth and
      development will suffer if they eat just the usual "meat and veg"
      minus the meat.

      Being a vegetarian is much more than just giving up certain foods.
      Humans require protein. Vegetarians choose to obtain theirs from
      non-meat sources.
