CAN VEAL FIT INTO A HEALTHY EATING PLAN?

Protein from both plant and animal sources can be included in healthy eating plans.  In fact, veal provides high levels of some essential nutrients like B-12 and zinc, nutrients that are at lower levels or absent in plant-based proteins. This is one reason the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend eating a variety of protein foods.
