HOW TO EAT PLANT-BASED WELL
We'll cover whether and what micronutrients need to be supplemented on a plant-based diet; the concept of calorie density and why it matters for young children; the distinction between plant-based, vegetarian, and vegan; and the concept of safety and nutritional adequacy.
