Can you explain to me, please, what is the difference between vegan and vegetarian?

A vegan diet excludes all kinds of animal products- meat, poultry, fish, seafood, eggs, dairy food, honey.
A vegetarian diet only excludes meat, poultry, fish, and seafood, so vegetarians can still eat eggs and dairy products.
There are also different kinds of vegetarians: Lacto- vegetarians (they eat dairy products, but not eggs) and ovo- vegetarians (they eat eggs, but exclude dairy food).
