Plant based diets for babies


Are you planning to raise your baby on a plant-based, vegetarian or vegan diet?

Vegetarian and vegan, along with pescatarian and plant-based diets, are suitable for babies and young children as long as they are planned and well balanced. Children aren’t just mini adults, their needs are unique.

I’m not vegetarian! BUT

While I’m not vegetarian, I aim to eat sustainably, eating mostly plant-based foods and am familiar with cooking a wide range of plant-based dishes. I respect everyone’s right to choose an eating pattern that feels right for them and their family. Sustainability and plant-based nutrition are areas that I’m continually learning about.

I had a consultation regarding my son. He has been improving slowly but steadily and in the last week, we had a succession of family meals where we all sat down to the same dinner. He is now eating steak, lamb, pork and salmon and has broadened his range of vegetables also. I never thought I would get to this stage but following your advice and blog has been a wonderful help. I know he will need a lot of encouragement but I am so grateful to you for taking the stress out of our mealtimes!

I recently completed the online Feeding Your Toddler course, & it was the best decision I ever made!! Mealtimes are a much more relaxing & positive experience for us all now, as I found Caroline’s information so straight-forward, sensible & easy to put into practice. It’s taken all the stress from meal planning for my fussy toddler & I have a new found confidence about presenting new foods that I had definitely lost somewhere along the way! I couldn’t recommend this course highly enough.

I went to Caroline with assistance for my third baby. He was on dairy free formula as he was showing signs of cows protein intolerance. As he was at the stage for weaning I wanted guidance on what non dairy options I should go for and what was the healthiest etc. Caroline was a great help and now I have a baby who is on normal baby formula! As it turned out he wasn’t intolerant after all which makes the weaning process a lot easier. I would recommend Caroline to any parent who is in a similar situation.
