The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and American Academy of Pediatrics agree: Well-planned vegetarian and vegan eating patterns are healthy for infants and toddlers. Time and attention are necessary to help young children, vegetarian or not, get all the nutrients they need for normal growth and development. For the first six months, all babies do best with breast milk. Use iron-fortified formula soy for vegans if breast-feeding is decreased or stopped. Cow's milk, soy milk, rice milk and homemade formulas are not appropriate for babies during the first year because they have the wrong ratio of protein, fat and carbohydrate.
They also are missing important nutrients for health, growth and development. Solid foods can be introduced in the same way as for non-vegetarian infants. Replace meat with mashed or pureed tofu or beans and soy or dairy yogurt and cheese. Since breast milk is such a rich source of nutrients, vegan mothers may want to breast-feed for more than one year.
