Before we get started, firstly let me extend a massive congratulations to you! You’re going to have a baby. But, now that the realisation has kicked in and you’re over the initial shock, excitement and disbelief, are you wondering about the foods you’ll be eating over the next nine months and the best way to navigate your way through a plant based pregnancy?

What is plant based ?

I’ll give you a clue… its in the name. Simply put, plant based means making food choices that are predominantly focused on foods that are derived from plant sources. Plant Based does not mean an exclusivity to a vegan or even vegetarian lifestyle. More and more people are now embracing this lifestyle of eating. Many people may still make the assumption that plant based is merely the latest trend. However the statistics speak for themselves and it certainly looks like the plant based lifestyle is here to stay.

Research published in 2020 has predicted an increase in veganism due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The researchers predicted that the global plant-based meat market will grow from $3.6 billion in 2020 to $4.2 billion by 2021, a growth of 17%.

According to Mintel;

  • 16% of the new product lines introduced in 2018 were vegan.
  • Sales of vegan milks skyrocketed by 33% between 2015 and 2017.
  • The meat-free market is expected to grow to  from £559m in 2016 to £658m in 2021.

According to a recent OnePoll survey by Viva! of 2,000 UK adults:

  • 9 in 10 Britons want the Government to introduce an immediate ban on intensive farming methods amid concerns over killer viruses.
  • 31 percent of Britons are set to slash their meat consumption or go vegan in 2021 amid Covid-19 concerns.
