An accessible guide for vegan, vegetarian, or veg-curious parents from the dietitian duo behind online community Plant-Based Juniors®–includes a bonus chapter on feeding infants up to six months!More of us are turning to plant-focused diets for our health and the health of the environment. But there haven’t been reliable, evidence-based resources out there for a new generation of compassionate, conscientious parents–until now. The Plant-Based Baby and Toddler is your go-to resource, offering easy-to-digest nutritional facts and guidelines that aren’t available elsewhere, with a special focus on the most important period of a child’s life when it comes to developing good eating habits: infancy and toddlerhood.Whitney and Alex discuss: • the PB3 plate: a visual guide to structuring meals that are nutritionally balanced–1/3 fruits and vegetables; 1/3 legumes, nuts and seeds; and 1/3 grains and starches–and easy to adapt for the entire family • how to meet needs for critical nutrients such as iron • a primer on both traditional purees and the baby-led weaning/feeding approach • strategies for dealing with challenges such as picky eaters • sorting fact from fiction when it comes to nondairy milks and other substitutes • 50+ plant-based recipes created specifically for stages from first bites to age threeAs dietitians and moms, Whitney and Alex pored over nutrition journals and called on the experts to learn how to provide their babies with the best diet possible. They found that plant-based diets are associated with a reduced risk of obesity, decreased cholesterol levels, and increased fruit and vegetable intake; in short, not only are they safe for kids, they’re pretty freaking awesome.
I’m not sure that I made mistake and order the book two times.So i got 2 books in one package, but payed 2 shippings.
I really wanted to like this book as being a plant-based mum I wanted to offer my little one lots of yummy, healthy treats. I made a few recipes from the book now and somehow they never came out as expected. I just took the veggie omelette cups out of the oven and they are just a disappointment. I also had to add much more water as I could not process the mixture with my Vitamix to become smooth.I also tried the BLW banana pancakes which also didn’t work. One point to know is that they use quinoa in some of their recipes – I read in another book that quinoa should not be given to babies younger than 2 years.I really like the nutrition section and the style of the book – so 3 stars in total.
