Dear Motlalekgomo
If you are eating a vegetarian diet that still includes fish, you should not really be at risk of deficiencies, except of calcium (our best sources are milk and dairy products). If you don't have any milk, yoghurt, cottage cheese, maas, or other cheeses, then please consider using a calcium supplement such as MenaCal.7 to provide the 1200 mg of calcium we need on a daily basis. Make sure that you eat plenty of legumes (dry cooked or canned peas, beans, lentils or soya) to boost your protein and mineral intakes.
Enjoy
