More Details

Starting with a foundation of healthy eating and how food affects your children’s mood, this course builds up to teaching your kids to think healthy for themselves and provides healthy plant based recipes for any diet (most are gluten free as well). But this course is about more than just food. With tips on creating a healthy lifestyle learn some easy ways to have a happier family and home life.

Recipes are plant-based, or have vegan options, so that they will accommodate vegan and vegetarians, but the course is intended to used with any diet. With families wanting to eat healthier and include more whole plant foods I've tried to create tasty recipes the whole family will love. Some kids want to eat vegetarian, or maybe one parent is vegan, whatever the case the challenges of creating healthy nutritious meals without making two dinners every night is becoming more and more common. Find out how you can make meal planning benefit everyone and still not have to cook a ten course feast night after night.

  • What is healthy eating
  • How to encourage your child to eat fruit and vegetables
  • How to cook delicious recipes your kids will eat
  • How to make exercise fun
