How does a teen vegetarian meet all their nutritional needs?

Teen Nutritional Needs

Teenage vegetarians have nutritional needs that are the same as any other teenager. The years between 13 and 19 are times of especially rapid growth and change. Nutritional needs are high during these years. The essential nutrients you must ensure you get enough of are protein, calcium, iron, and vitamin B12.

Just wondering, will a vegetarian diet affect the growth of a 15 year old teenager?
For example, will they not fully develop or grow to their maximum potential?
Thanks
