Introducing Plant-Based Juniors: First Bites
As most of you know, I became a mom in May to my sweet little boy, Caleb.
As any nutrition-obsessed dietitian would, while I was pregnant, I began thinking about what I would feed my son one day.
I was immediately confused and concerned. I knew my predominantly plant-based diet was ideal for me, but would it be ideal for my little one? I wasn’t sure.
Would he drink cow’s milk when he was old enough? Would soy be safe for a growing boy? I had a lot of questions.
As I searched the internet and poured over every plant-based nutrition book I could get my hands on, I realized that credible information on this topic was extremely lacking. There were plenty of plant-based recipe books out there, but not a lot of thorough nutritional information — at least none with proper sourcing of facts (and you know what a stickler I am about evidence-based practice).
We know how hard it is to find trustworthy information, so we’re here to ease parent’s fears and empower them to raise happy, healthy children in whatever way that works best for their family — vegan, vegetarian, reducetarian, whatever!
To kick things off, we’re releasing our very first resource — Plant-Based Juniors: First Bites.
This 42-page ebook is the first of its kind: a definitive guide to baby-led weaning for plant-based babes.
In case you’re unfamiliar with the term, baby-led weaning (BLW) is an approach to starting solid foods that allows baby to lead the way as opposed to starting with purees.
Emerging research suggests that BLW helps babies form a more positive relationship with food and establish a healthier body weight than the traditional introduction to solids.
First Bites includes:
- What is baby-led weaning (BLW)?
- Why did we choose BLW for our Plant-Based Juniors (PBJs)?
- How to start BLW
- How to incorporate key nutrients like iron into a plant-based diet using BLW
- 20 delicious, baby-led weaning recipes specifically for plant-based babes
- Grocery list
- Meal planning guide
- FAQs about BLW and PBJs
