WHY I CREATED THIS COURSE:
Nutrition experts say that an appropriately plant-based diet can be absolutely safe and adequate for all ages and stages. While I agree 100%, there are some nutrients that can require a little more effort to incorporate when your child’s diet doesn’t include animal products, like meat, fish, eggs, and dairy.
I have always been passionate about children's nutrition and raising children on a vegan diet but a few months ago in a vegan parenting group I am part of on Facebook a mum was asking where to get vitamin B12 for her daughter and she got so many ill-informed replies including kombucha, juicing and dirt as reliable sources of vitamin B12 for her toddler. I felt the need as a mum and nutritionist to create a course to be able to reach more families. I want to help other families thrive on a plant-based diet.
This is why I have created this course, to give parents the knowledge and tools to create plant-based meals for their children to cover all the important nutrients needed for their growth.
There can be some criticism and fear in the media and from extended family members about vegan diets for children which is due to lack of knowledge and understanding about nutrition. And from working with plant-based families I know most parents have the same questions and similar worries when it comes to raising children on a plant-based diet. I know this course is a way for families to access those answers and resources at their convenience.
About the Author
Hi! I am Claire Power, a mother of 3 children, my twins Eloise and James who are 4 and half and predominantly vegan and Annabelle who is 18 months old and has been vegan since conception. I am French and live with my little family in Orange, Australia.
I am also a qualified nutritionist from Deakin University and I have been vegan since 2016.

I love working with plant-based families and hope to help new families with this course raise healthy thriving vegan children and remove any doubts or worries concerning nutrition on a vegan diet for parents.
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.
