|Exploring Vegetarianism: A Healthy Alternative|
| Am I a vegetarian if I don't eat meat but I do eat fish? Can I still have milk and be a vegetarian? What about eggs? These are just some of the questions that will be answered in this comprehensive programme about a popular but often misunderstood subject. Terms like 'vegan', 'ovo-lacto vegetarian', and 'ovo vegetarian' will be clearly defined. Vegetarians will offer first-hand information on which foods provide all the necessary vitamins, minerals and other nutritional supplements to keep their bodies healthy, and take a look at breakfast, lunch, dinner and maybe a few snacks, from a vegetarian perspective. Sample menus are provided at the end of the programme.|
