Vegetarianism may have implications on the growth of children and adolescents. There are different types of vegetarian diets: some may be suitable for children, other deficient in essential nutrients. If a vegetarian diet is done properly and includes fortified foods it can promote health and reduce risk for major chronic diseases.
Restriction or exclusion of products of animal nature can lead to low intake of essential nutrients.
Keywords: vegetarianism, child

Childhood is the period when nutritional habits are acquired, when growth is intense and when deposits of essential nutrients are stored.
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, vegetarianism is defined by “the consumption of a diet that contains vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals and sometimes eggs and dairy products” (1).
Vegetarianism may have severe implications on the growth of children and adolescents, therefore it is necessary to assess the nutritional status of vegetarians to insure optimum growth and a good health state and to prevent potential deficits.
There are different types of vegetarians (1) –
Table 1.
Each of these diets has implications on the nutrition and health of children and adolescents. The reasons for which one adheres to a vegetarian diet are different:
• economic reasons: in some countries, vegetables are cheap;
• the risk of omnivorous diets and the negative publicity on the diseases emerged as a consequence of the consumption of animal products;
• moral reasons: the belief that eating meat involves cruelty and environmental…...

Kommunikacios Trening

...befejezését, ebédszünetet, stb. A szabályok lefektetését követően olyan játékban vettünk részt ahol megláttuk, hogy lehetetlen nem kommunikálni valamilyen módon. E kísérlet végén kiválasztottunk egy partnert, akivel páros bemutatkozást prezentáltunk. A résztvevők a párjuk vállára rakták kezüket, és páronként pár percben bemutatták a társukat. Ebédszünet előtt kis elméletet vettünk át, konkrétabban a Johary ablakot ahol az önismeretet vizsgáltunk. A modell két fő dimenziót ad meg az „én” megértéséhez, egyfelől a viselkedés és stílus azon aspektusait, amelyek az „én” számára ismertek („Én”), másfelől pedig azokat, amelyek azoknak ismertek, akikkel kapcsolatban áll („Mások”). Ebédszünet után ún. „szeretem szomszédaimat“ játékkal folytatunk. A nap vége felé a kommunikációs modellt, a kommunikáció 4 szintjét és történet szájba adását vettük. Kommunikációs modellnél tanultunk a kódokról és az adó és vevő közötti üzenet menetéről, azaz a kontextusról. Kommunikáció 4 szintjéhez tartozó tartalmi, önkifejtési, kapcsolati és felszólítói oldalról és annak gyakorlását vettük. „Történet szájba adásával” végeztünk ahol kamera előtt öt hallgató történetet mesélt el a másiknak. Második napot nyitókörrel kezdtünk, ahol mindenki röviden elmondta, hogy milyen hangulatban megérkezett az napi tréningre. Ezután következett a szelektív hallgatási feladat ahol tréner által elmesélt esemény után kellett igaz, hamis vagy nem tudom válaszokat adni.

Kölcsey Ferenc

... Nyújts feléje védő kart Tengerén kínjának." Borúlátó énje egyéb műveiben is fellelhető. Például a Vanitatum Vanitas-ban (Hiúságok hiúsága) a költő úgy tartja, hogy az életben minden hiába való, hiszen mindennek vége a halál. Ezért kell a világnak és nekünk is érzelmektol mentesnek lennünk. ,,... Légy, mint szikla rendületlen, Tompa, nyúgodt, érezetlen, S kedv emel vagy bú temet, Szépnek s rútnak húnyj szemet." Valamint a Zrínyi éneke című szerepversben kiderül, hogy nemcsak a hazaszeretet és a történelmi emlékezet, hanem a magyar nemzet is eltűnt, elmúlt, feledésbe merült. ,,Vándor állj meg! korcs volt anyja vére, Más faj állott a kihúnyt helyére, Gyönge fővel, romlott, szívetelen; A dicső nép, mely tanúlt izzadni,"... Egyes verseiben viszont ezzel párhuzamosan jelenik meg a bizakodás és a remény. Ezek közé tartozik a Huszt is. A vers elején az éjszaka az uralkodó, ám a végére a sötétségtől eljutunk a fényig, majd cselekvésre szólít fel bennünket. ... ,, Hass, alkoss, gyarapíts: s a haza fényre derűl!" Kölcsey Ferenc tehát élete végéig bízott abban, hogy igenis van még esély a dolgokat megváltoztatni. A haza sorsa jobbra fordulhat, a haladás bekövetkezhet, a feudális rendszernek vége szakadhat, és ezáltal a magyar nemzet egy boldogabb jövő előtt áll. E nézetének alapján cselekedett oly sok mindent, ami a hazát és a haladást szolgálta....

Nature Care

...unhealthy fats which is contributing to the obesity epidemic, that is now prevalent in most western societies. High salt contents in foods are well known to be contributing factors for people with heart disease and high blood pressure. It has now been recently reported on the news that high salt contents in foods may be contributing to the increase in autoimmune diseases. This gives us another reason to reduce these foods from our diet. In order for us to be able to get back in line with the nature cure principles I believe that it is necessary to remove all of the above mentioned foods from the diet. We need to get back to eating the way our ancestors did. All foods should be organic including fruit and veges, meat and poultry. Although nature cure prefers a vegetarian diet for most this would be too hard to do and so a reduction in meat would suffice. Growing your own fresh food and herbs, or buying from a farmers market is often a better option than the supermarkets due to “fresh” foods being kept In cold storage for long periods reducing the quality of available nutrients. Water is an essential for life and has many benefits to our health both internally and externally and plays an important role in the nature cure philosophy. In the 19th century the problems they may have had with water would have been with the cleanliness of it or possible contamination eg.cholera . Today we may have clean water......

(Male & Female-Same preferences?) Several studies have described remarkable differences in food choice between men and women. Consistently, women are reported to have higher intakes of fruit and veges, higher intakes of dietary fiber&lower intakes of fat. 66% of women make food choices based on whether they believe that the food is a good choice for losing weight or a bad choice. In accordance with such more healthy food choice, women usually attach greater importance to healthy eating. Easy assumptions about male and female behaviors are challenged by the data. For instance, although health trends usually tend to be skewed toward female consumers, men and women were equally likely to have chosen an appetizer salad as part of their most recent restaurant dinner. No significant gender differences were seen, either, in consumption of more indulgent appetizers such as breads, dips, soups, nachos, chicken fingers and fries. On......
