Whitney English, Registered Dietician, Plant Proof, Plant Based Juniors

In Episode 95 I sit down with Whitney English, Registered Dietician, to talk about plant-based nutrition during pregnancy, infancy and breastfeeding (lactation). Whitney, along with her partner Alex (also a Registered Dietician), are the founders of Plant Based Juniors – an online resource that brings evidence based nutrition information specific to these stages of life to the public.


Specifically in this episode we cover:

  • Benefits of a plant-based diet during pregnancy and infancy
  • Position of the American Dietetics Association (ADA)
  • Specific nutrients of focus during pregnancy including recommendations for supplementation
  • Specific nutrients of focus during breastfeeding including recommendations for supplementation
  • Breast milk versus formula and different formula options
  • Specific nutrients of focus during infancy including recommendations for supplementation
  • Introducing solids
  • Picky eaters
  • and much more

This is an episode I have wanted to do for a couple of years now. It’s quite a comprehensive conversation so if it’s a topic that’s very relevant to you I highly recommend grabbing a pen and paper and listening in a quite comfortable space without distractions.
