Episode 14: Alex Caspero, RD – Picky Eating, Food Choices, Language, Supplements & More

Alex Caspero, Registered Dietitian with Plant Based Juniors comes back today! We had so much to cover during our first episode that we decided to go for round two! Great news- after our first conversation Alex became inspired and created a free protein guide you can check out.

We cover A LOT in this episode. It is packed full of great information around food, the kitchen and kids. We talk about language in the kitchen with our kids, giving the kids choices around meal time within reason, picky eating, getting in the protein you need in plant based food, supplements and seasonal eating!

Alex is a wealth of knowledge and explains things simply and easy to understand!

Alex Caspero is a Registered Dietitian and plant based Chef, she is the Founder of Delish Knowledge and the co-founder of Plant Based Juniors. She is the Mom of two and personally focuses on plant foods with a little dairy or egg and what I love about her approach to food and plant based eating is that it’s not an all or nothing deal. Over at Plant Based Juniors, she and her business partner Whitney offer a complete guide to plant-based prenatal and pediatric nutrition.
