Parents who follow these unusual diets or lifestyles should realize that children are far more vulnerable than adults are to serious health damage from nutritional inadequacies and imbalances. Dietary restrictions that may be tolerated by adults could cause lasting harm to an infant or young child.
Young people who become vegetarians for ethical or environmental reasons may also be placing their health at risk.

Recipe of the day
Spicy Pork Scratchings
|Food Mall: Pork|
Pinch of dried chilli flakes
Drizzle of olive oil
1.Preheat the oven to 220C.
2.Cut the skin into two pieces and score incisions in the skin with a sharp knife.
3.In a pestle and mortar. Crush the fennel, coriander and chilli with a pinch of salt. Trust me, this can take forever!
4.Place the skin on a roasting rack over a tray to catch the fat and sprinkle the spice mix over the skin making sure the skin pieces are evenly covered.
5.Sprinkle another good pinch of salt over the skins and drizzle a little olive oil over them.
6.Bake in the oven until the skins are very crispy. I found it took about 30-40 minutes to be sure it was properly hard on the top.
7.Break it up into pieces.
