Synopsis

Whether you are vegan and planning a pregnancy or a health professional needing further information on nutritional guidelines for a vegan infant, this is an essential practical guide. It takes you through all nutritional aspects of pregnancy up to early childhood and on to the teenage years following a purely plant-based diet. You will find practical advice on dietary essentials, menu planning, and recipes together with vegan family stories to highlight the benefits and potential pitfalls of adopting this way of eating. It aims to dispel the common myths surrounding the vegan diet, showing how this can provide all the key nutrients for pregnancy, breastfeeding and, growth and development. It addresses some of the typical concerns: will your child get enough energy? Enough protein? All the essential fatty acids? Enough calcium and vitamin D? As plant-based diets grow in popularity to help the environment as well as personal health, Sandra Hood’s long experience of working with vegan families is more relevant than ever.
