Dr. Ruby Thomas is a board-certified pediatrician in Atlanta, GA. Since so many people experience pushback from family and friends about whether or not veganism is safe for kids, it was great to have Dr. Ruby on the show to share practical advice for families.
In this episode, we chat about:
Why it’s okay for kids to be vegan
How to get small children and teenagers on board
Her family’s easy go-to meals
Being a social vegan with kids (school parties & family events)
How she made vegan formula right at home for her children and store-bought options that are available.
