Talk with doctor before moving kids to vegan diet

Tue., Jan. 17, 2017

Dear Doctor: My sister has decided to switch her entire family to a vegan diet, including her 2-year-old twins. But I’m really worried – is it possible for young children to stay healthy and get all of the nutrients that a growing body requires? Dear Reader: Unlike a vegetarian diet, which cuts out meat, poultry and fish, the vegan approach eliminates all animal-based products. It centers instead on whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables and leafy greens.

I’m not talking “used to be” when he was 29, but when he was 49. He never played high school or college sports but was always active – tennis, skiing and golf. He used to jog, but he gave that up recently because his knee just wasn’t where he knew it should be.
