In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with the Plant-Based Juniors, Alex Caspero and Whitney English about plant-based babies and toddlers. We know people are concerned about their babies and toddlers when it comes to eating a plant-based diet. Will they get all they need? What can we give them instead of dairy-based formula? But I was waisted on whole milk. It’s almost like we know it’s the best thing for us adults, but we second guess ourselves when it comes to the children. Well, Alex and Whitney share some amazing information and tips for making it work…and most of all, what to say to others when they challenge you! These gals are great and you will want to share this show with all plant-based parents or parents to be out there.
Alexandra Caspero MA, RDN, and Whitney English MS, RDN are both moms, registered dietitian nutritionists, and founders of Plant-Based Juniors. PBJs is a community for parents and educators interested in properly implementing plant-based diets for children. PBJs is dedicated to filling the gap in credible pediatric nutrition information for plant-based infants and children. They promote an all-inclusive “predominantly plant-based” approach, supporting all families from vegan to vegetarian to flexitarian. Alex and Whitney are co-authors of the new book The Plant-Based Baby & Toddler. We especially love their Instagram feed!
