Thanksgiving is just a couple days away, and many families are finding that dinner at the "Kid's Table" is different than the meal for adults this year.

Teenagers are included in this trend.  In a study that focused on 13-18-year-olds, one in six parents surveyed said their teen tried going vegetarian, gluten-free, vegan, or Paleo at some point in the past two years.

To keep the peace this holiday season, experts suggest researching your teen's diet before the big day to accommodate everyone's needs.  They also say parents should recognize that teens changing their diets is "normal adolescent development" and not a "challenge to parental authority."
