Learn the benefits of a plant-based diet for families with this case based self-study course!

This course requires reading which offers information about the benefits of plant-based diets and how to incorporate a plant-based eating pattern into a families’ routine. The authors help empower the learner to assist parents to nourish their families with plants. Content in the required reading focuses on:

  • How a diet centered around plants can optimize health, prevent chronic disease, care for our planet, and be an act of compassion.
  • Nutrition specifics for all the stages beginning with pregnancy and breastfeeding through adolescence.
  • Tips, strategies, and recipes to guide families as they transition to plant-based eating

This CPE course provides nutrition care professionals with information they can use to counsel their patients on why and how they can transition to a plant-based diet. A case-study based exam helps the reader apply the information to their work settings. This CPE is appropriate for RDNs and NDTRs.

Purchasing Options: Course includes hard copy book, course document, electronic test, and 1 certificate with passing grade. If you already have the book, use the “additional certificate” option.

This self study course provides a comprehensive overview of the nutrition and environmental benefits of plant-based eating. It nudges readers toward eating more plants, even if not exclusively vegetarian or vegan. I highly recommend the required reading and the course. The course pulls out important topics and highlights them to help the reader/student gain a broad-based knowledge of issues facing families seeking to nourish their families with plant-based meals and snacks.

Theresa Stahl, RDN, LDN, FAND
This book and self study course is a complete introduction guide, start-to-finish, on feeding individuals and families a healthier diet that simply includes more fruits, vegetables, legumes, and other plants. It is well researched and presented tactfully. Guides are provided that will allow anyone to review guidelines and make appropriate recommendation to their patients or for families to make better choices for themselves.

Julie Wallace, RDN, LD, CPT
Who can debate that plant-based eating isn't the most healthful way to reduce the risk of chronic disease? As a nutrition professional, it is imperative that the RDN understands the science behind this eating style and can succintly teach families how to transition to vegan, vegetarian and other plant-based eating plans.  The required reading and the self study course encompass all of this information.
