n 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.
While nearly all parents agree that a nutritious diet is important for children to thrive, most feel that their children are not eating a healthy diet. This is not surprising, given the demands of busy families and confusing, conflicting research about what diet is really best for health.
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.
This book was not what I was expecting it to be. I thought it was more like a cookbook giving me lots of different options to nourish myself. Instead it is a diatribe on how to eat plant based and what that meant.
Are there good ideas in here? Yes. Lots. It’s more reference than book to help me nourish myself. There are recipes but they are few and far between. It was quite a dry read and took me awhile to wade through.
Not my favorite book but okay. Great for your reference section, though.
