Dr. Alan Greene is a powerful advocate in the Plum Organics mission of creating the most healthful food choices for infants and young children. An internationally renowned practicing pediatrician, pediatric adviser, author, speaker, children’s health advocate, and father of four, Dr. Greene is a graduate of Princeton University and the University of California, San Francisco. Upon completion of his pediatric residency program at Children’s Hospital Medical Center of Northern California, he served there as Chief Resident. He entered primary care pediatrics in January, 1993, and is currently in private practice in the Silicon Valley.
In 1995, he launched DrGreene.com, later cited by the American Medical Association as “the pioneer physician website.” In 2010, Dr. Greene founded the WhiteOut Now movement, which aims to change how babies are fed beginning with their first bite of solid food. He is an industry leader with a progressive approach to wellness and a deep understanding of the critical role food plays in the lives of children.
Dr. Greene has become the go-to media expert, pediatric adviser, and regular columnist on critical issues regarding children’s health, organic food, and the impact of toxic chemicals in our food supply and environment. He is also the author of several books, including the popular and progressive guides for new parents Feeding Baby Green and Raising Baby Green.
And now that all that technical stuff is out of the way, we can say that Dr. Greene is not only our pediatric adviser and partner, but also our friend! We have such great respect for his wealth of knowledge, his overall integrity, his optimism, and his empowering outlook on life as a whole.
He’s been known to show up for a “Greene Plum-tini” at happy hour and has even joined us in a team-building mud race with fellow Plum people. He is humble, fun, and an all around stellar guy. Thank you for your friendship and pragmatic guidance, Dr. Greene. We heart you!
