A vegan (pronounced VEE-gun) is a vegetarian who does not eat any animal products, including eggs and dairy products. A well-planned vegan diet can be nutritionally adequate, even for children and pregnant and lactating women. However, it is important that wise food selections are made. These selections include soymilk fortified with vitamin B12, vitamin D, and calcium. Also important are whole grains, nuts, and seeds, which are rich sources of zinc and other nutrients. Foods high in vitamin C will help to increase iron absorption.
