      For a number of reasons your child or teen may have announced that he
      or she has decided to be a vegetarian eater. This can be a really
      healthy decision, with an eating pattern full of nutritious,
      plant-based, less-processed foods, or it can be a diet low in some
      essential nutrients.

      The definition of vegetarian eating can vary from one individual to
      another. Some mean they are eating only plant-based foods. Others may
      also include options such as eggs, dairy products, or fish. Some are
      really only eliminating red meat products.

      The choice to be a vegetarian eater can be prompted by concern for
      animals or the environment, it can be a taste preference, a desire to
      eat more basic foods for health reasons, because of peer influences,
      to counter a family history of certain health concerns, or for a
      number of other reasons. When taken to extreme, however, such as when
      a number of healthy foods are eliminated, or if it is a guise for an
      eating disorder, vegetarian eating can also be a health concern.
