Is vegan diet safe for growing children? Have always been curious. Do share your thoughts on this. Thanks!

Yes. A well planned vegan diet is not just safe but probably the best for growing children. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics also deduces that vegan diets are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle. It specifically points out that pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood and adolescence are included in this claim. The specific nutritional requirements for growing children can easily be met with planning, something that is always highly recommended from physicians and nutritionists.
