I have just read from a plant-based nutritionist that we cannot feed our kids the same food as we eat as they definitely require legumes and tofu every day. Is this true?
Do Children have a different need of macronurtients?
Would appreciate your advice.
If you go here, you can see the current RDA/DRI/AI for all nutrients for all ages/gender of the life cycle.
As you will see, the needs are not much different.
The real question is, does the recommendations, guidelines and principles here cover those needs? And the answer is yes. You can see this for yourself by plugging the diet in the CRON-O-Meter.
