In Episode #128, I’m joined by registered dietitians Alexandra Caspero and Whitney English to discuss raising babies and toddlers on a predominately plant-based diet. If you’re wondering why people would consider a predominately plant-based diet for young kids, what the advantages are, and how plant-predominant diets compare to plant-exclusive diets, then this episode is for you.
Alexandra, Whitney, and I went over the science of growth and development in plant-based populations and addressed the fear in the media surrounding plant-based diets for children. We also looked at where a plant-based diet could go wrong and they key nutrients of focus. You’ll also hear about the importance of dietary fat, whether soy products are safe for babies and toddlers, and things to consider when using infant formula.
