JIMENEZ-ORTEGA, Ana Isabel et al. Nutritional problems of vegetarian and vegan children. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2023, vol.40, n.spe2, pp.20-23.  Epub Dec 18, 2023. ISSN 1699-5198.

The number of people following plant-based diets to a greater or lesser degree is increasing, but the more restrictive a diet, the greater the risk of nutritional deficiencies.

The childhood stage is a stage of great physical and maturational growth, therefore, nutritional deficiencies at this stage can have serious and sometimes permanent consequences.

People who follow restrictive diets of any kind, such as plant-based diets, should receive support from specialized staff to ensure that their diets are varied and balanced, as is desirable in any case.

Keywords : Vegetarian; Vegan; Pediatric diets.
