How long does it take to do the course?
The course is a self-paced online program containing 7 modules. You can read all the modules in a few days. You get lifetime access when purchasing the course and you can go back to it later on – for example if you sign up now when your child is a toddler you will be able to get back to the information once they turned 5 or a teenager and have different nutrient needs.
Does this course cover baby nutrition?
With this ecourse I chose not to focus on babies between the age of 6 months and 12 months as I did not want this course to be about the introduction of solids and baby led weaning etc. Maybe in the future I will create a new course for vegan babies nutrition!
My family is not fully vegan but we sometimes eat plant-based meals. Can we still benefit from this course?
Yes! You do not need to be fully vegan to benefit from eating more plant-based meals. And if you are going to increase your plant-based meals as a family it is important to learn to create nutritious meals and make sure as a family you do not risk nutrient deficiencies. All children can benefit from eating more plant-based meals including legumes, wholegrains, fruit and vegetables!
My family has been vegan for a long time. Will we gain anything from this course?
I believe it is often people who have been vegans the longest who tend to fall into some eating habits and routines and can lack some nutrients. Also the course covers all different life stages of children from toddlers to teenagers so you might not be as familiar with nutrition needs for your children at every age. It is also good to refresh your own knowledge and learn from an actual nutritionist-based course.
My child has a food allergy but I want them to eat a mostly plant-based diet. Is this course suitable for children with allergies?
Yes in the Nourishing Plant-based Kids course there is a whole module on food allergies and substitution ideas for a nutritious vegan diet. You also have the option to add on a private 1:1 consultation with myself if you would like further personalised support.
I don’t live in Orange/ Australia – how can I take part?
The Nourishing Plant-based Kids Course is all delivered online. You do not need to live in Australia to do the course. If you purchase the package with the added 1:1 consultation I also do them online via skype so it is available worldwide.
What equipment do I need to do this course?
You only need a computer/tablet with internet access to open the pdfs on. A printer is a nice to have to print some graphics to keep as reminder on your fridge or in your pantry. The foods and supplements recommended in the course can be purchased online or in stores.
