Abstract

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) states that plant-based diets can be beneficial for all life stages and lifestyles when they are appropriately balanced (Vesanto et al., 2016). The AND recognises that plant-based diets can effectively help individuals prevent and manage different health conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, and obesity. This position was also endorsed by the British Dietetic Association (BDA) in a Memorandum of Understanding with the Vegan Society in which both associations affirmed that well-planned vegan-friendly lifestyles can promote healthy living in people of all ages and even during pregnancy or breastfeeding (Vegan Society, 2017).
