Brown Vegan (fitness & nutrition)

Dr. Ruby Thomas is a board-certified pediatrician in Atlanta, GA. It was great to have her on the show to share practical vegan tips for families. There are so many people who have pushback from family and friends about whether or not veganism is safe for kids.

In this podcast, 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.
