Has anyone ever raised their little one vegetarian?? If so , how did you give them their protein?? Just curious.
Anon948: Until you learn a bit more about nutrition, maybe you should refrain from telling others about what is healthy and what is not in all caps.
Beans and nuts are a good source of protein, and if you are not vegan eggs and dairy products are as well. Quinoa and spinach also contain good amounts of protein. With a well planned, varied diet, vegetarianism is healthy for the whole family.
The only nutrient that can't be gotten from plants is B12, which can be easily gotten from less than one egg a day if you are not vegan - or from fortified vegan foods, like soy, if you are.
Here is a great link that will answer all your questions about protein, as well as many other things to consider and be aware of with a meat-free diet. The site is for vegans but is useful for any vegetarian.
