Default VEGAN Diet Meets Children's Nutritional Needs ADA

Far from an eating disorder. Of course, like all diets, care must be
taken. But then, we know from even Vietnam that typical American diets
for in shape Americans were building up artery disease. All diets need
care.


Vegan Diets Meet Children's Needs - ADA

American Dietetic Association: Vegan Diets Meet Children's
Nutritional Needs

Monday June 18 2:15 PM ET

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - With some careful menu planning, children
and even infants raised as vegans can get all the nutrients they need
for good health, according to two reports in the June issue of the
Journal of the American Dietetic Association.

Because vegans shun all animal products, they may get too little of
some nutrients found in meat and dairy products, such as calcium and
vitamin B12. Nutrient deficiencies are a particular concern when it
comes to growing babies and children. But according to the reports, a
well-rounded vegan diet--sometimes supplemented with certain
nutrients like B12 and zinc--can provide children with all their
nutrition needs.

What's more, vegan kids typically eat less fat and cholesterol and
more fruits and vegetables than other children do, note Virginia
Messina and Dr. Ann Reed Mangels. Messina is a professor at Loma
Linda University in California. Mangels acts as a nutrition advisor
to the Vegetarian Resource Group in Baltimore, Maryland. Vegans eat
only plant-based foods, using fidyl grains, legumes, fruits and
vegetables to fill all their dietary needs. A typical vegan
substitution would be to use soy milk in place of cow's milk.

While these substitutions can work for babies and children, parents
need to ensure their children are getting enough of certain vitamins
and minerals, according to Messina and Mangels. For example, vitamin
B12, which is essential in children's neurological development,
exists naturally only in animal products. However, breakfast cereals,
soy beverages, nutritional yeast and vegetarian ``meats'' are often
fortified with B12, and are important sources of the vitamin for
vegans, the study authors point out.

The researchers also advise that breast-fed infants of vegan mothers
get a regular supplement of vitamin B12, since maternal stores of the
vitamin may be low. Infant soy formulas are fortified with vitamin
B12 and other nutrients, but Messina and Mangels stress that regular
soy milk--like regular cow's milk--is inappropriate for babies
younger than one year. As with all infants, an iron-fortified cereal
is a good choice as a first solid food, the report indicates.

By age 7 to 8 months, vegan protein sources that can be introduced
include pureed cooked beans, well-mashed tofu and soy yogurt, the
research team writes. Parents should also be careful about their
vegan children's supply of zinc, calcium, riboflavin (vitamin B2)
and--if sun exposure is inadequate--vitamin D. Key sources of zinc
include fortified cereals and certain nuts and beans such as lentils,
according to the authors. Calcium-rich vegan foods include fortified
tofu, soy milk and orange juice, as well as leafy greens and certain
beans.

As for iron, good sources include beans, fortified cereals and
grains, and dried apricots and raisins. However, some nutrients,
including iron and zinc, are not absorbed as well when they come from
plant sources. So, Messina and Mangels note, parents may want to
consider zinc supplements and be sure to give their kids foods that
promote iron absorption--namely, foods rich in vitamin C.

Children also need certain essential, unsaturated fatty acids, which
can be found in foods like flax seed, canola oil, nuts and soy
products. ``The wide availability of convenient vegan foods, many of
which are fortified, make it increasingly easy to plan healthful
vegan diets for children,'' Messina and Mangels write. ``Vegan
diets,'' they conclude, ``can meet the nutrition needs of children if
appropriately planned by a knowledgeable adult.''

Still none. Eating VEGAN is a healthy alternative, but obviously car
must be taken. Potato chips are vegan and they will kill you. It
disproves US assertions that VEGAN is an eating disorder, as supported
by the ADA. It is not. That doesn't mean as in all eating anything goes.

Meanwhile a meat diet is a leading cause of cardio vascular disease.
Yes, it can be improved upon. But the results on GI showed plaque and
artery disease on young meat eaters in their 20s.

You'll note once again that the ADA approves of a vegan diet, (with
considerations of course like all diets). They do NOT call it an eating
disorder. Usual Subjects doesn't have the balls to respond.

Monday June 18 2:15 PM ET

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - With some careful menu planning,
children
and even infants raised as vegans can get all the nutrients
they need

beans.

As for iron, good sources include beans, fortified cereals
and
grains, and dried apricots and raisins. However, some
nutrients,
including iron and zinc, are not absorbed as well when they
come from
plant sources. So, Messina and Mangels note, parents may want
to
consider zinc supplements and be sure to give their kids
foods that
promote iron absorption--namely, foods rich in vitamin C.

Children also need certain essential, unsaturated fatty
acids, which
can be found in foods like flax seed, canola oil, nuts and
soy
products. ``The wide availability of convenient vegan foods,
many of
which are fortified, make it increasingly easy to plan
healthful
vegan diets for children,'' Messina and Mangels write.
``Vegan
diets,'' they conclude, ``can meet the nutrition needs of
children if
appropriately planned by a knowledgeable adult.''

American Dietetic Association: Vegan Diets Meet Children's
Nutritional Needs

Monday June 18 2:15 PM ET

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - With some careful menu planning,
children
and even infants raised as vegans can get all the nutrients
they need
for good health, according to two reports in the June issue of
the
Journal of the American Dietetic Association.

Because vegans shun all animal products, they may get too
little of
some nutrients found in meat and dairy products, such as
calcium and
vitamin B12. Nutrient deficiencies are a particular concern
when it
comes to growing babies and children. But according to the
reports, a
well-rounded vegan diet--sometimes supplemented with certain
nutrients like B12 and zinc--can provide children with all
their
nutrition needs.

What's more, vegan kids typically eat less fat and cholesterol
and
more fruits and vegetables than other children do, note
Virginia
Messina and Dr. Ann Reed Mangels. Messina is a professor at
Loma
Linda University in California. Mangels acts as a nutrition
advisor
to the Vegetarian Resource Group in Baltimore, Maryland.
Vegans eat
only plant-based foods, using fidyl grains, legumes, fruits
and
vegetables to fill all their dietary needs. A typical vegan
substitution would be to use soy milk in place of cow's milk.

While these substitutions can work for babies and children,
parents
need to ensure their children are getting enough of certain
vitamins
and minerals, according to Messina and Mangels. For example,
vitamin
B12, which is essential in children's neurological
development,
exists naturally only in animal products. However, breakfast
cereals,
soy beverages, nutritional yeast and vegetarian ``meats'' are
often
fortified with B12, and are important sources of the vitamin
for
vegans, the study authors point out.

The researchers also advise that breast-fed infants of vegan
mothers
get a regular supplement of vitamin B12, since maternal stores
of the
vitamin may be low. Infant soy formulas are fortified with
vitamin
B12 and other nutrients, but Messina and Mangels stress that
regular
soy milk--like regular cow's milk--is inappropriate for babies
younger than one year. As with all infants, an iron-fortified
cereal
is a good choice as a first solid food, the report indicates.

By age 7 to 8 months, vegan protein sources that can be
introduced
include pureed cooked beans, well-mashed tofu and soy yogurt,
the
research team writes. Parents should also be careful about
their
vegan children's supply of zinc, calcium, riboflavin (vitamin
B2)
and--if sun exposure is inadequate--vitamin D. Key sources of
zinc
include fortified cereals and certain nuts and beans such as
lentils,
according to the authors. Calcium-rich vegan foods include
fortified
tofu, soy milk and orange juice, as well as leafy greens and
certain
beans.

As for iron, good sources include beans, fortified cereals and
grains, and dried apricots and raisins. However, some
nutrients,
including iron and zinc, are not absorbed as well when they
come from
plant sources. So, Messina and Mangels note, parents may want

Are you trying to tell us that it is only vegans who use "supplements"?
You are just too clever by half ricky.
