Teen dieters can lose some vital nutrients

Parents, be forewarned. Teenagers who decide to "go green"
with their diet may not realize there is more to being a
vegetarian than simply eliminating a food group, say
nutritionists at the USDA's Children's Nutrition Research
Center at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

"A nutritional, well-balanced vegetarian diet must be
well-planned," said Janice Stuff, a research dietitian at
Baylor. "Haphazard eating habits can rob teenagers of
valuable nutrients."

Teens need to get adequate amounts of protein, iron,
calcium, and vitamin B12 during these body-building years.
According to Stuff, a teen needs 1 gram of protein daily for
each 2.2 pounds of body weight. "A 120-pound teen on a
semi-vegetarian diet could meet daily protein needs with two
3-ounce servings of chicken or fish, one 8-ounce glass of
milk, and one egg," she said.
