Who is this eCourse for exactly?

Deciding to raise my family plant-strong was one of the best decisions I ever made. This course shares my expertise and experience as a father of 3 and pediatric subspecialist so that you too can optimally nourish your plant-based child(ren) and confidently respond to the dietary concerns of others.

These lessons are quite unlike other online plant-based material. They are focused on growing children. You will learn very practical information. Feel empowered with a newfound nutrition mastery that will last a lifetime.

  • For the parent or guardian who wishes to ensure that their vegan/vegetarian child is meeting their nutritional needs and avoiding any deficiencies.

  • For the family who is enthusiastically vegan for the animals but is not so sure about proper nutrition.

  • This eCourse is NOT about feeding an infant or about baby led weaning. It is for families with children ages 2 and up. Also, you won't find recipes here. You will, however, learn the skills to select the optimal recipes for your family.

  • 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed. No hassle full refund within 7 days if not completely happy with this eCourse.
