Vegan diets for babies, toddlers and children

January is ‘Veganuary’ the month that going vegan is promoted. Plant based diets are increasing in popularity and many families are opting to raise their children on vegan diets.

Typical vegan diets tended to be low in fat and high in fibre which is not suitable for growing children who need a lot more energy and nutrients from food, being filling means they can curb appetite before your child has eaten enough too. In addition there are other critical nutrients that have to be carefully thought about when meal planning in order meet their unique nutritional requirements.
