THE LIFESTYLE WE BUILD FOR OURSELVES AND OUR FAMILIES LARGELY DETERMINES OUR HEALTH AND HAPPINESS.
What our kids eat, what goes on the family table – that's up to us. Parents and caregivers have an amazing opportunity to not only take charge of their kids' health but teach them taste, culture and a love of healthy food that will benefit them for a lifetime.
I'm Dr. Jackie Busse, a board-certified pediatrician with expertise in evidence-based lifestyle and preventative medicine. I focus on the power of whole-food, plant-based nutrition to prevent and reverse disease.
Children raised on a whole food, plant-based diet not only enjoy normal growth and development, they benefit from lower rates of:
atopic diseases: asthma, allergies, eczema
upper respiratory infections such as sinus and ear infections
early heart disease and high blood pressure
mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and poor attention
lifetime cancer risk
