PTP270 - Dr Reshma Shah
In: Podcast2

In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we sit down with Dr. Reshma Shah to talk about the most important thing in the world to many of us…children. WAIT! If you are not a parent or don’t plan to be, we know you’ll learn something that you can share with someone along the way, so please be sure to stick with us. We have been waiting a long time to have Dr. Shah say on our podcast that a plant-based diet can be and is a healthy option for our children.

But, there is more to this show than that. Dr. Shah talks to us about breastfeeding, formula, supplements, feeding your children solids, weaning, cow’s milk and so many other questions new parents have. Please share this podcast with any parents you know whether they are plant-based or not. There will for sure be something they can take away from this very informative show. Share it on Facebook, in an email, or on Instagram. Or after you subscribe, leave us a rating and review so others can find this podcast too. We are so glad you are here.
