    Hi

    I’ve been a vegetarian for 2 years now, but my parents do not support my vegetarian lifestyle, and considering that I am a premature teen, they are afraid that I am not getting enough nutrition. I searched up articles online about being a vegetarian premature teen but I can’t find anything. If anyone knows about what i can do to ensure my parents that a premature teen ( like myself) can get enough nutrients while being vegetarian that would be great.

    Hey @dhang123,

    Thanks for wanting to help animals by going veg! You can let your parents know that there is NO nutrient you can’t get from a vegan diet and they’re even better because you don’t get all the cholesterol, saturated fat, antibiotics, and hormones you would from animal products: http://www.peta2.com/lifestyle/infographic-how-to-go-vegan/

    Check out our page on how to talk to your parents about going veg, too, for some great tips: http://www.peta2.com/lifestyle/talking-parents-going-vegan/

    E-mail us at peta2@peta2.com if you need anything else- we’re here to help! :)

    hey,

    I’ve been a vegetarian for 3 years now and I’ve gone to the dietician for them to check up on how I’m doing. You could also have blood tests done to check for different things. Start visiting you doctor regularily for check ups too! i hope these work! :)
