Part 2 of an Exclusive Webinar Series: Plant-Based Juniors: Strategies for Meeting the Needs of Vegan and Vegetarian Children | Presented by Alexandra Caspero, MA, RD, CLT, RYT | Wednesday, February 12, 2020, from 2–3 PM EST | Earn 1 CEU
Now more than ever adults are discovering the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle and choosing to adopt this disease-preventing diet. But what about the kids? Is a plant-based diet safe and beneficial for the entire family? While the Academy’s official statement is that well-planned vegan diets are healthy from infancy on, many RDs don’t feel comfortable adapting these popular diets for children.

Join Alexandra Caspero, MA, RD, CLT, RYT, on February 12, 2020, from 2–3 PM EST, for the second and final webinar of this two-part series, as she reviews the basic nutritional knowledge that all dietitians should have in order to effectively counsel parents. She will provide applicable tips for feeding kids and families, and highlight innovative ways to increase plant-based eating for all ages and dietary preferences.
