Is A Vegetarian Diet For Me?

Before You Begin

Sometimes teens call themselves "vegetarians," but eat an unbalanced diet of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and French fries, leaving their bodies nutritionally deprived. Before you start a vegetarian diet, it's a good idea to talk to your primary health care practitioner or a registered dietitian.

The years between 13 and 19 are especially important for growth and development. Learn more about your special nutritional requirements before you add or exclude any food or groups of foods.
