    I love that these recipes have been placed into categories. The section on school lunch ideas is particularly useful from a teachers point of view and can be offered to teens as advice to ensure they are getting enough nutrients to sustain energy throughout afternoon lessons.

    The end of this article offers advice on the important nutrients that one might miss from not eating meat. It provides loads of examples about what types of food a vegetarian (or vegan) can eat in order to gain vital minerals and nutrients.

    This resource is aimed at teens and is very useful in offering reasons why people become vegetarian. I love that it offers 'semi-vegetarianism' as many young people may be undecided if this is a way of life that they are interested in. By suggesting that you may choose to eat some meat opens up the idea for young people to try for their own reasons.

    This is an easy to follow guide to help both the teen and the parent manage a child's decision to no longer eat meat. It uses a simple color code system to highlight when the information is applicable to the teenager and when it is something for the parents to read.
