‘Meeting the nutritional needs of vegans’

Increasingly people are switching to more plant based or vegan diets. For practitioners it is essential to understand the nutritional implications of following a vegan diet. Without careful planning many clients may be lacking vital nutrients for optimal health. Christine will take a detailed look at the key nutrients that may need attention when it comes to supporting vegan clients. She will also look at specific requirements for certain groups of people including children, pregnant women, athletes and the elderly. Christine will discuss the use of lab testing to help identify potential deficiencies and key supplement support to consider
