It takes thoughtful planning to ensure that people receive all of the health rewards a vegetarian or vegan diet has to offer. This toolkit provides you with additional resources to ensure that the nutritional needs for important nutrients are met while eating a vegetarian or vegan diet, including handouts for protein, omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, vitamin D, vitamin B12, iron, zinc, and iodine. Each handout includes a current overview of the scientific field related to the specific nutrient in vegetarian and vegan diets, as well as recommendations, eating tips, and food sources. The toolkit is specially designed for use by health care professionals and educators to work with clients, patients, and the public.
