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!

Being a Vegetarian During BBQ Season

Being a Vegetarian During BBQ Season

It’s that time of year! Barbecue Season!

Barbecue season is upon us!  Can you be vegetarian and still enjoy all the joys that barbecuing in the great outdoors bring? Absolutely!

Is your daughter always hungry?

Is your daughter always hungry?

Does this happen in your house?? You prepare a nice meal for everyone, clear the table, load the dishwasher and clean everything up only to have your daughter come back to the kitchen an hour later to make a snack because she is hungry. This happens in my house and it drives me crazy! Maybe I should be more strict and tell them the kitchen is ‘closed’ like my mother did when I was a kid but I have a hard time saying no when my kids say they are hungry.  Should they have eaten more at supper, should I have made sure they ate a nutritionally-balanced meal with lots of protein, healthy fats and carbohydrates?

Is it just a phase?

Is it just a phase?

Your daughter declared she wants to become a vegetarian. What were your first thoughts? Do any of these resonate with you:

  1. What am I going to feed her?
  2. She’ll never get enough protein on a vegetarian diet
  3. How are we going to eat out?
  4. It’s just a phase, she’ll grow out of it
