My child is the typical picky 9 year old eater. But she loves cakes and cookies. What's an easy fix?
Healthy choices: Keep cakes and cookies for a special treat for holidays and birthdays. Give your child a variety of healthy choices, including healthy snacks. Let your child help prepare meals- some kids will eat foods they helped cook. Let your child go to the grocery with you and pick out a healthy treat. ...Read more
Please tell me if there are any cereals or other B12 fortified vegan foods using hydroxocobalamin (not cyanocobalamin)?
Probably not but...: As far as I know, all foods fortified with B12 are fortified with the cyanocobalamin form, as it is the least expensive.It is hard to know for sure, as the labels always just say B12 and don't specify the type. But if anyone is going to the extra expense of fortifying with hydroxocobalamin they are not telling us! I advise vegans supplement with hyroxocobalamin or methylcobalamin. See comment: ...Read more

Yes: By definition. If you want to become a vegan for moral reasons, be sure you know exactly what you are doing, and take the supplements you need, or you will ruin your health quickly. The vegan industry is full of both very good and upstanding people, and also shameless crooks and liars. Be warned. ...Read more

Moral high ground: In this era of factory farming, it's a conscientious choice but each of the big recent studies shows no health advantage or disadvantage of a supplementing vegan over an omnivore in longevity or any category of illness if you control for other health habits. A non-supplementing vegan will become seriously sick in a few months. Be discerning and recognize the huckstering & real caring about animals ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tricky: question as toddlers are notoriously picky and getting all required nutrients for growth and development with a restricted diet may be challenging. If you are very well educated on veganism and have consulted regularly with a doctor or nutritionist to determine protein and vitamin requirements for weight and age, you can be successful!

Vit B12 may drop: The vegan diet is complete and very healthy. All that is missing is B12 (cyanocobalamine), which comes only from animal food, or from vitamin supplements. Taking a multiple vitamin pill or better a higher dose B12 supplement by pill (or injection) is recommended. I like to test the B12 levels on my vagan patients just to be on the safe side. It is crucial to vary your types of vegetables etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nothing from animals: Vegans undertake their diet either out of concern for the way that factory-farmed animals are treated, or because they have heard too-good-to-be-true claims about the health benefits.

Limited: Despite all the "pop" claims, the huge study in am. J. Clin. Nutr. 89: 1613s, 2009 found no different between british vegetarians and omnivores in any category when researchers control for the other healthy lifestyle habits of vegetarians. "the china study" is misleading subscience by a well-intentioned man misled during mao's famine. The moral benefits are substantial. Choose what's right for you. ...Read more
The greasy stuff: If it leaves a big grease spot on a paper napkin, think about choosing something else instead. Generally you can tell. For weight loss, aerobic fitness is key; your body's sense of what is really needs will work better. You also know that a vegan must supplement for vitamins & minerals (famously b12, but also consider a, d, zinc, calcium, iron, iodine) or you'll ruin your health. Good luck. ...Read more
