Every parent wants the best for their kids, and one of the most important things for a developing child is what they eat. Unfortunately, childhood obesity is an epidemic in the Western hemisphere and it is a major risk factor for chronic health conditions and diseases such as asthma, sleep apnea, bone and joint problems, type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Childhood obesity can also lead to bullying, low self-esteem, social isolation, and depression.
Luckily, you can help your children lead healthy lives with proper nutrition and make easy and great tasting meals for your family, and I can guide you through the process. For vegan parents, it may be difficult to find a primary care physician who advocates for your lifestyle and they may try to convince you to go back to eating meat and dairy, even though the evidence shows that a vegan diet with whole, unprocessed foods, is the optimal way of eating for growing babies, toddlers, children and teenagers.
I work with an online support group, Vegan Pregnancy and Parenting, giving webinars and answering questions parents have about giving the best nutrition possible to their little ones. Thanks to the internet, I can help you and your family save time and prevent disease, through online consultations.
