We just read a good article called "A Tangled Vegetarian 'Web'" that talks about a few of the things we cover in Veggie Teens:
- How to make sure your vegetarian teenager is getting the proper nutrients
- How to feed a family when not everyone is a vegetarian
- Suggestions include serving favorite meatless meals (see our recipe for Mac 'N Cheese on page 76) and setting up "food bars" like our Grilled Pizza party on page 83.
It also says, "In a 2005 national poll, 3 percent of the respondents ages 8 to 18 said they were vegetarian. More than 10 percent of girls ages 13 to 15 never eat meat." That doesn't surprise us!
