Hi, I'm Megan Garner. I’m a Plant Based Nutritionist, Naturopath and Herbalist and I am passionate about helping parents raise thriving plant based kids. I have been following a plant based diet since 2014 and am raising my daughter Airlie on a plant based diet.
Vegan diets have been approved by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics who state "appropriately planned vegetarian, including vegan, diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits for the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. These diets are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, adolescence, older adulthood, and for athletes" (Melina, Craig & Levin, 2016)
When I had my daughter Airlie I was worried about how she was going to get all her nutrition on a plant based diet. So I started researching to find out how to make sure she was getting all the nutrients she needs to thrive. This led me to writing my book Babies and Toddlers Plant Based Nutrition which is an excellent resource for parents raising vegan/plant based children and contains all the information I wanted to know as a first time mum to a vegan child.
I am a qualified Nutritionist and Naturopath and am registered with the Naturopaths and Herbalists Association of Australia (NHAA). I practice evidence based integrative/complementary medicine. You may be entitled to a rebate on your consultation, please contact your Health Fund to confirm.
