This article examines the significance of data from Vegetarian Resource Group which cites a 1.6% increase in the population of vegetarian youths over the last 15 years, and also questions the practice of vegetarianism among children.
This opinion piece questions the significance of a Vegetarian Resource Group survey of 1,258 children ages 8 to 18 that found 3% never eat meat, poultry or seafood. According to this author, the noted 1.6% increase from 1995 does not reflect a significant trend, and further, the author argues that a vegetarian diet for children may not be the healthiest choice, as children require more supervision to ensure they are getting a nutritionally complete diet.
