How Parents Can Implement and Stick to the Flexitarian Diet with Tara Haddad

Use Meat Replacements

Many parents mistakenly believe that switching to a plant-based diet will require them to learn and master a whole new arsenal of recipes — a feat which can be a challenge for the guardians of young children who are notoriously leery of new foods.

Plan In Advance

It takes time and energy to transition your family’s diet, learn new recipes, and source new foods. If you’re wanting to implement and really stick to a flexitarian diet, Tara Haddad recommends planning your family’s meals in advance.

Involve the Whole Family

At the start of each of week, strategize in advance which meals will be fully plant-based and which — if any — will incorporate reduced portions of animal products and meat. Then, with the help of other family members, devise a “menu” that outlines the week’s meals.
