Viva Vegetarian and Vegan Mother and Baby Guide



While exclusive breast feeding is recommended by medical professionals for the first six months, we would like feel prepared with a back up plan.  After some time I found Premiriz- a rice based formula which is vegan, organic and palm oil free. This can be ordered from Europe.  Soy based, almost vegan formula is available in the UK.  Dairy milk formulas are widely available.
