Here is what I know as a certified vegan nutritionist.
We DO know best for our kids. It IS safe for your child to have a vegan diet, regardless of what that one doctor told you.
As someone who has studied this, I can tell you, without a shadow of a doubt, that a vegan diet IS the right choice for your children. That a vegan diet gets to be healthy…and now, it gets to be FUN and EASY.
Because here is what I know as a vegan mum.
That it doesn’t always feel that way.
That feeding your kids can feel as stressful as it does for omnivore parents, but with the added layer of constantly worrying about whether you’re actually doing the right thing.
But not anymore.
Because what I have created is a program that will erase any shadow of a doubt that you CAN do this, and do it with ease.
That being vegan as a family gets to be your reality.
That your kids will actually eat the food you prepare for them, and that you can serve it confidently, knowing they’re getting everything they need.
Healthy Vegan Kids is different from anything else out there.
Not only do you learn what nutrients your kids need and why, you’ll learn how to actually have them eat them.
How? Because we use the power of food psychology, supercharged with creativity that makes eating FUN.
Instead of just a list of foods to follow, I actually give you 500 nutrient-focused, kid-approved vegan recipes and I teach you how to develop your own recipes so that you can guarantee that whatever you serve will be kid-approved.
Not only do you get the interactive course full of everything you need to assure you that your kids are getting their nutritional needs met, I’m offering a Facebook group as well!
Inside, you’ll get live support from me, and a chance to connect with other like-minded vegan parents that get it.
This will be YOUR space for troubleshooting, brainstorming, input and ideas, so that you leave with the personalized breakthrough that ensures your success.
If you’re sick of mealtime being the most stressful part of your day…
If you’re tired of the niggling worry that maybe the anti-vegan agenda is right and you’re not giving your child the healthy eating foundation they need…
If you’ve ever second-guessed your decision that going vegan is best for your children…
Through years of working with countless vegan mums on their kids' diets, and feeding my own kids, I've developed my 4 step process to get your kids eating a healthy vegan diet.
Step 1:Identify which nutrients the child is missing from their diet.
Step 2: List the foods the child loves and will happily eat.
Step 3:Boost the foods they love so they're full of the nutrients they need.
Step 4:Work on introducing a wider range of health promoting veggies, legumes and wholegrains to set them up for a lifetime of healthy eating.
Healthy Vegan Kids teaches you how to work through my system at a pace that works for you and your child.
How Healthy Vegan Kids guides you through this process:
First off, I'll give you anoverview of vegan nutritionfor kids, where you'll learn which nutrients you need to concentrate on to keep them healthy.
Each week you'll fill out a short quiz that'll tell you whether your kids are getting enough of the essential nutrient we're focusing on that week.
You'll keep a list of the foods your kids love, and teach you how to boost those foods to pack them full of nutrients. Whether your kids love chocolate milk or vego spread on toast, we can have them bursting with nutrients!
I'll also give you access to my collection of500 nutrient focused, kid friendly recipes, so you can try out some new ideas on your kids.
Finally, I'll teach you how toget your kids eating veggies, legumes and wholegrains in a calm and stress free way, and without the mealtime power struggles!
What we'll cover in the 10 weeks
Mindset and Reduce Stress
This first week will set you up for success by looking at your thoughts and beliefs around what you've been taught about vegan nutrition, and your beliefs around your kids and their food.
This work will empower you and your kids so you can get the most out of the rest of the course.
Nutrition Overview and Energy
We’ll start out with an overview of vegan nutrition for kids. I’ll cove which nutrients are harder to get from a vegan diet, and which ones are easy so you don’t need to worry about them.
Then we’ll dive in into the most important nutrient for vegan kids - energy. I’ll teach you how to super charge their food so it’s packed full of energy to get them through the day.
In week 3 we get the big one out of the way and talk all things iron. I’ll teach you how to boost your kids’ food so it’s absolutely packed with iron. And there won’t be a spinach leaf in sight!
Although it gets far less attention than the other nutrients, zinc is actually harder to get from a vegan diet. So this week, I'll teach you all my hacks to make sure your kids are getting this super-important nutrient.
I’ll give you my favourite foods and ingredients to make sure your kids have enough calcium for super strong bones. And if you’re soy free, i’ve got you too!
Nutrient Consolidation Week
We spend a week consolidating the 4 essential nutrients, and make sure you're feeling 100% confident about your kids' food before we move onto expanding their diet.
We talk all things veggies. I’ll give you the plan I used to take my son from veggie hater to broccoli lover.
Wholegrains (wk 8) and Legumes (wk 9)
Move over spirulina, wholegrains and legumes are the true superfoods of the vegan diet. I’ll teach you how to increase your kids’ intake of these amazing foods.
Final Wrap Up
Our final week is a chance for you to practice everything you've learnt with my full support.
A Word From Me to You
As a vegan nutritionist and mum of 2, I am truly passionate about helping families to thrive on a vegan diet, but in a way that works for them.
I know that there's a huge difference between knowing what your kids should be eating, and actually getting them to eat it. So I'm here to bridge that gap.
Healthy Vegan Kids is set up for kids with gluten allergies and intolerances. If your child has other allergies, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can let you know if I can help.
How long will I have access?
You have lifetime access to the program and recipes, and Facebook Group.
I'm super busy, will I need to make lots of foods from scratch?
No, I'm a super busy mum too, so I totally get the no time thing! While some of the boost suggestions involve changing up or trying new recipes, I also have heaps of tips to add to existing food, and lists of supermarket foods for each ingredient.
Do you help with nutrition deficiencies?
Nutrition deficiencies are complex. As a nutritionist, I can help you to improve your child's intake of a nutrient, but you need to work with your GP for ongoing monitoring and determining individual supplementation levels.
Do you recommend supplements?
I recommend B12 and Omega 3 supplements for all kids. If your child's diet appears low in certain nutrients, then the weekly quizzes will recommend speaking to your GP to get tested for deficiencies. I do not recommend supplements without speaking to your GP.
Does my location matter?
No. The weekly lessons are prerecorded, so you'll be able to watch them at anytime.
