Following vegetarian diets while pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or while nursing.

This tag is for questions about following vegetarian diets while pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or while nursing a child after pregnancy.

The Dietitians of Canada assert that well-planned vegan and vegetarian diets are healthy during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

It may take planning to get enough protein, iron, zinc, calcium, vitamins D and B12 and omega-3 fats from foods or supplements. A healthy vegan diet can meet all your nutrient needs at any stage of life including when you are pregnant, breastfeeding or for older adults.
