A Definitive Plant-Based Nutrition Guide for Families That Are Plant-Based or Simply Plant Curious
While nearly all parents agree that a nutritious diet is important for children to thrive, most feel that their children are not eating a healthy diet. This is not surprising, given the challenges many families face including busy schedules and confusing research about what diet is really best for health.
Authors Reshma Shah, MD, a plant-based pediatrician, and Brenda Davis, RD, a world-renowned expert and pioneer in plant-based nutrition, will empower parents to become experts at nourishing their families for health and with joy. You will discover:
How a diet centered around plants can optimize health, prevent chronic disease, protect our planet, and be an act of radical compassion.
Nutrition specifics for every stage of childhood—from pregnancy and breastfeeding all the way through the teen years.
Answers to many of the common questions that often worry parents (picky eating, nutritional supplements, pediatric weight-related issues, and more )
Tips, strategies, and recipes to bring all of this information to your dinner table as you transition to plant-based eating.
It's nice to know that you don't have to commit to 100% plant-based eating: Simply changing up your family’s menu a week at a time can really make a difference!
