Help! My daughter's gone vegetarian

Karen GilmanHi, I am Karen Gilman and I am here to celebrate with you your daughter’s choice to ‘go vegetarian.’ You are here because you worry your daughter will not get the nutrients she needs or you are looking for tips on how to make healthy vegetarian meals. I can help put your mind at ease and give you the tools to support this vegetarian journey.

My daughter's a vegetarian... Now what?

Your daughter has declared she no longer wants to eat meat.  How is she going to get enough protein, calcium or iron? Can her growing body get enough of these nutrients and the calories its needs if she does not eat any meat?

Not to worry. She’ll be fine as long as she eats the right foods. I know only too well how challenging it can be to get kids to eat properly.  Boys, too, can be picky eaters, though they don’t face the same nutritional challenges as girls.

You don’t want her to become dependent on multivitamins to bridge the gap. Ensure she gets the nutrients she needs from the food she eats.

So What Are You Waiting For?

Let's get started!

FREE – 7 Days To Thriving On A Vegetarian Diet

Being a vegetarian has several advantages both from a health and environmental perspective. However, the perceived disadvantages of being a vegetarian sometimes discourage people from making the switch. These so-called ‘disadvantages’ are easy to overcome and should not stand in the way of choosing to become vegetarian.

The most common misconceptions around a vegetarian diet are:

My Biggest Worry

My Biggest Worry

Even now that I have several years under my belt with a vegetarian child, I still worry about what she eats. I suppose as a mother we never stop worrying but what we worry about changes as they get older. Thankfully I don’t have to worry whether she is napping enough, whether she’ll cry when I drop her off at school or if her friends will play with her at recess. Those days are long gone and my worries have shifted. Now they are more along the lines of how will she do on that math exam, will that pimple on her face go away before the weekend and obviously, is she eating properly.

A Great Noodle Alternative

A Great Noodle Alternative

If your kids are anything like mine they love noodles.  Whenever we go out for Chinese food they always want the fried noodles and vegetables though I think they end up eating more of the noodles than the vegetables.

At home we have several different kinds of noodles.. the typical pasta-type noodle, rice noodles, soba noodles, udon noodles and now I have added another one.. squash noodles.
