A report by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) claiming people over the age of 65 should increase their meat and dairy intake has been blasted ‘disappointing’ by a dietitian.

Louise Palmer Masterton From Stem & Glory Talks To Different Women About Their Experiences Of Following A Vegan Diet During Pregnancy  Continue... When I became pregnant with my first daughter, I was almost 40. My diet at that time consisted of mainly vegetables, small amounts of (mainly) wholegrains, lots of tofu, lentils, nuts, seeds and beans, and I continued eating in exactly the same way throughout my pregnancy . I had no morning sickness, no cravings, no complications, no deficiencies and delivered both my children safely at home.
