Choose one Vegetarian diet for your children without the help of a doctor it can be dangerous, because there is a risk of making mistakes in the choice of foods, in the method of cooking, in the doses and in the combination of foods, but what if the doctor does not agree with the parents' choice?





The VegPyramid Junior guide - written by Leonardi Pinelli, Ilaria Fasan and Luciana Baroni and published by Sonda Edizioni - intends to fill this void in front of which inexperienced and disoriented parents often find themselves.

The Guidelines offered by the book now represent a system "tested" by all those who have used it and offer indications and advice for creating balanced, complete and tasty vegetarian menus, dedicated to all age groups, from 1 to 18 years.

The book contains nutritional information on foods and fundamental nutrient groups, indications on the main diseases caused by an unbalanced diet, the analysis of energy needs and requirements of the different age groups, indications for the menus of the school canteens, divided according to the caloric intake. Finally, VegPyramid demonstrates that following a balanced and controlled vegetarian diet (and giving up the dangerous do-it-yourself) can have many health benefits and a greater chance of longevity.
