If you are raising plant-based kids, this episode is for YOU!

About featured guest:

Heidi is a primary care pediatric nurse and mom of 4  (3 girls and 1 boy) and grandma of 2. 

As a pediatric nurse, she loves helping moms care for their tiny newborns and great big teenagers--and everyone in between.

Heidi created her website, Leafy Vibe, because saw a need that wasn’t being met.

More and more moms are choosing a vegan or plant-based lifestyle for themselves and their babies and toddlers.  These moms are looking for guidance on how to feed their little ones. Heidi's website offers easy-to-understand, evidence-based nutrition information, meal ideas, and toddler feeding tips (plant-based, of course).

  • Healthy Toddler Snacks Ebook

  • 12 Tips for Feeding Your Picky Toddler
