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!

I am always trying to make sure my daughter gets enough calcium in her diet. She won’t eat anything green so we rely on yogurt and beans for her calcium sources. Does your daughter eat anything green? Not counting Smarties or M&M’s that is. We don’t have too many green smoothies on the menu or heaps of leafy greens on our dinner table. There are two ‘green’ foods my vegetarian daughter will eat on a regular basis and those are broccoli and pesto, both of which are served with pasta, of course. 

Becoming an entrepreneur with my daughter

Becoming an entrepreneur with my daughter

If your teenage daughter is anything like mine she likes to spend money. Who doesn’t, I guess. Unfortunately, allowance only goes so far and babysitting jobs are few and far between.  As such, I had been searching for something she can do to earn a little spending money here and there. When I came across an article about a woman who was voted the number 1 female entrepreneur in Canada,  I knew I had found something that would be of interest to both of us.
