How to answer diet questions from kids. What do you do when your child asks questions about your plant-based diet? It depends on their age, but we recommend these 3 key tips. Even though a predominantly plant-based diet has become much more socially acceptable over the last several years, it’s still not the norm for most of the world. That’s why many people have questions when they find out we don’t eat meat. Although in our experience, this usually comes from a place of genuine curiosity – and even self-reflection from the asker – rather than from a place of criticism. And these conversation ..read more

Plant Based Juniors Blog
by Plant-Based Juniors
3w ago
What is predominantly plant-based? Eating a plant-based diet can mean many things to different people. Here’s our take and why. The plant-based movement has exploded over the last decade and continues to grow. There’s plenty of evidence that eating more plant foods, and fewer animal products, offers positive benefits for personal and public health, planetary health, and the animals within the food system. If you’ve been around PBJs for a while, you’ve probably noticed that we like to use the term “predominantly plant-based” to describe how our families eat. Understandably, we’re frequently as ..read more

What are processed foods? Is it okay to eat them? You may be surprised. What you should know about processed foods. “Processed foods” has become somewhat of a health buzzword, indicating the types of foods that we shouldn’t be eating or feeding to our families. It suggests that these foods are less-than, unhealthy, or downright harmful to our health. But did you know that “processed” doesn’t necessarily mean unhealthy? In fact, we’d argue that the majority of things we eat on a regular basis have been altered to some degree. Let us explain. The truth is that they probably aren’t at all what y ..read more

Twice baked sweet potatoes! A delightfully sweet and crunchy vegan potato recipe for an easy weeknight side dish. Sweet potatoes are one of the most regularly served foods in our households.

How to Use a Personalized Nutrition Approach With Your Family
Plant Based Juniors Blog
by Plant-Based Juniors
2M ago
Personalized nutrition. Why is a more personalized approach to nutrition important? Because nutrition isn’t one-size-fits-all. As dietitians, we constantly hear sayings like “everything in moderation”, “a calorie is a calorie”, and “calories in, calories out” that seem to simplify nutrition into a blanket science. As students, we were trained to teach everyone how to follow standard dietary guidelines and simplified tips. This would explain why you have probably heard them before, too. But is that really the best way to approach nutrition anymore (or was it ever)? And what about when kids are ..read more
