How to Create a Healthy Food Story for Your Children with Alex Caspero of Plant-Based Juniors

Imagine sitting down to eat with your family and meals are easy, nourishing, and stress-free!

There is so much confusion around nutrition as adults and when it comes to feeding our kids, it can be even more anxiety-provoking. Parents worry about nutrients, growth and development, if their kids are eating too much of this… or not enough of that. For many families, mealtime can be stressful.

But it doesn’t have to be that way! You can bring joy back to the family table and teach your children what food is really about: nourishment, energy, connection, and love.

As a registered dietitian nutritionist and creator of the award-winning website Delish Knowledge, Alexandra Caspero not only helps parents understand the science behind feeding their children the best diet possible, she also explains how to do it to minimize stress and make family meals fun.

Alex is also the co-founder, with Whitney English, of Plant-Based Juniors, an evidence-based platform that helps parents navigate the world of plant-based prenatal and pediatric nutrition. Together, they’re on a mission to get more plants on the plate and share their easy-to-digest philosophy (and recipes) online and in their new book, The Plant-Based Baby and Toddler.
