More and more people are switching to a plant-based diet thanks to its proven health and environmental benefits. In the U.S., more than a third of consumers are actively trying to eat more plant-based foods.

Studies also suggest that plant-based eating is associated with sustainable weight management, reduced risk of mortality, and lower risk of heart disease. In addition, it’s also linked to the lowered risk of certain cancers.

People often ask if it’s healthy for kids to be raised vegan. Well, the American Dietetic Association states that a well-planned vegan, vegetarian and plant-based diet is appropriate for all stages of life, including for kids!
