In this downloadable booklet, Nutritionist Sarah Scotland looks at the implications of raising your child as a vegan.
Sarah has carried out extensive research in this area, looking at the Eatwell rounded daily diet for a child with the recommended portions of fruit, vegetables, dairy, protein and carbohydrate that is deemed to best for a child to ensure that they are getting all that they need to promote healthy growth and development.
In her clear, concise language, Sarah discusses the options available, from breastfeeding, choosing formula and weaning, providing clear explanations as to what vitamins and other supplements you need to consider to ensure that your child is getting all that they need.
There is also a handy table for you to refer to as your child moves from weaning to eating a balanced diet to illustrate the sources of the elements needed and what foods contain these elements.
This booklet is just one of a range of downloadable mini booklets that Sarah has created around nutrition for children and families, for the full range please visit her website: Sarah Scotland – Nutritionist.

About the Author
“After 15 years of being a stay-at-home mum, I decided that I needed to do something for myself that I was passionate about. I have always been interested in food and wellbeing, and how to encourage a healthy environment in the household, therefore I chose to become qualified as a Nutritionist. I took a Science GCSE, then an Access Course and finally my Bsc Degree in Nutrition, Excercise and Health. Since I have been qualified, I have had many opportunities to work with a wonderful array of people, offering them hints and tips that have helped them lead healthier lives.I have worked with a big selection of families, in children centres and schools, developing their cooking skills and sharing practical nutrition advice.
In the last few years, I have been involved with people with learning difficulties, and I have enjoyed helping them and their carers learn about portion sizes and giving advice on healthy choices. I created Wise About Food as a community interest company in order to offer community groups the nutritional advice and general wellbeing that has not been previously available to them.”
