Vegetarian Advice for Teens and Their Parents
Teens Most Likely To Act On Ideals And Go Veg Or Vegan
Teens are the most energetic, aware, idealistic people, the most likely to walk their talk, and go vegetarian or vegan for life.
They're saving the planet, while their parents often aren't aware that it needs saving!
But going vegetarian or vegan is more challenging for teens than for any other group.
The usual concerns about dieting, nutrition, relationships, and health are magnified by other challenges.
Some of these challenges are: Lack of understanding, and/or hostility from family, nutrition needs for growth and development, learning to cook for themselves, peer pressure, weight, fitness, self-confidence.
It's not surprising that teens need vegetarian advice. It's also not surprising when teens don't want advice. I'm honored that they ask!
Savvy Vegetarian gets a lot of advice letters, these days! I read them all, and answer as many as I can. But sometimes it takes me me a while to write back.
You can learn a lot by reading the advice letters below. Or download any of the Free Savvy Vegetarian Reports. Or cruise the articles or resources. If you don't find what you need, please write. Or post a question on the Savvy Veg Facebook Page.
