Synopses & Reviews
An evidence-based, practical resource that explores the many benefits of a plant-based diet and provides parents with the tools they need to feed their families for health and with joy.
A proper, nutritious diet leads to healthier children. While nearly all parents agree, most feel that their children are not eating a healthy diet. This is not surprising, given the difficulties of navigating the nutritional landmines of poor food choices fueled by busy schedules, and confusing, conflicting research about what diet is really best for health. Further, do the same rules for adults apply to growing minds and bodies?
Nourish offers the solution parents have been waiting for when it comes to deciding what and how to feed their families. Authors Reshma Shah, MD, a plant-based pediatrician and affiliate clinical instructor at Stanford University School of Medicine, and Brenda Davis, RD, a world-renowned expert and pioneer in plant-based nutrition, will empower parents to become the experts of nourishing their families.
Parents will learn:
- How a diet centered around plants can optimize health, prevent chronic disease, care for our planet, and be an act of radical compassion.
- Nutrition specifics for all the stages of childhood--from pregnancy and breastfeeding all the way through adolescence.
- Tips, strategies, and mouthwatering recipes to bring all of this information to their dinner tables as they transition to plant-based eating.
