This section looks at why we want to abstain from eating meat, and provide some basic nutrition information to consider in a vegetarian or vegan diet. When you join the Society, we send you more comprehensive information and tips to live well on a vegetarian/vegan diet. For those of you who are new vegetarians, or who would like information about cooking for children, we also have pages with ideas to support you – go to our Food & Nutrition pages for recipes and tips on lifelong vegetarianism.
