Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine: Nutrition for Kids

Eating habits are set in early childhood. Choosing a plant-based diet can give your child—and your whole family—the opportunity to learn to enjoy a variety of nutritious foods.


Kids are naturally compassionate and like to help animals. Their young eyes see the similarities between humans and other sentient beings that many adults have forgotten to look for. If you have a kind kid who wants to take action for animals, PETA Kids is here with some great ideas!

Plant-Based Juniors

Most kids aren’t eating enough plant foods. We provide evidence-based guidance to help you fill that gap.

We’re Whitney and Alex – pediatric dietitian nutritionists, best-selling authors, and most importantly moms.Mealtimes should be joyful and feeding kids should be fun. We’ll teach you how to foster healthy eating habits so you can stress less and enjoy more.

World of Vegan

Kindness is one of the most important values we can teach our children; and choosing vegan is a natural extension of that. Here you’ll find resources on vegan nutrition for children, compassionate kids activities, and more.

Welcome to Nature’s Little Helpers where infants, toddlers, pre-schoolers and school-aged children come to create, explore, discover, experiment and learn. We take care of our earth and learn compassion for all at NLH where kindness is the key.

Nature’s Little Helpers values the opportunity to work with children and families from all circumstances. I will work with local community support services to ensure that the needs of all children are met to the best of my ability.

In a family daycare there can sometimes be a variety of ages, however each child is provided programming specific to their developmental stages and needs. All children have the opportunities to learn proper language skills, social skills, self-help skills, emotional skills, large and small motor skills, and creative skills. This is achieved through modeling appropriate behaviors and language, singing, story time, games, positive encouragement, and problem solving.
