    This is geared toward vegans more than vegetarians. I found it very useful in my quest to feeding my kids as vegans. I highly recommend this book to any parent that's on the same journey.

    While still reading it I gave this update: it's written a little pretentiously, and there is a lot of advice that I'd rather not be receiving from a diet and nutrition book about how to raise my kids in other arenas. However, it does breeze over a lot of info on health and nutrition, which I'm sure is especially helpful for those who may not be committed to a more in-depth study. Her scope is broad, the depth a little less so.

Her scope is broad, the depth a little less so. Also, I threw a (healthy) recipe for Fruit-Butter Bars in the oven (made with the help of my 2-yr-old daughter) while reading Vegetarian Children one afternoon, and the aroma just made reading that much more enjoyable on an already lovely day. The bars got thumbs up from the whole family. Once I finished it: Alright, I had to up my rating from 3 stars to 4, b/c although I didn't love the book in its entirety (and would have liked more thorough, less meandering info), I bought it mostly as a recipe book, looking for healthy things to cook that my 2-yr-old would eat. So far, I have been really impressed with the recipes that I have made. Every time, I am skeptical of the strange innovations, but end up happy with the results. And who wouldn't like a "healthy" excuse to make German Chocolate Cake (with squash... see what I mean)? So far, we have made: Fruit Butter Bars Vegan French Toast with Fruit-Maple Topping Nutti Whip (on Cinnamon Raisin Bagels) Hero Subs (duh, though.) French Bread Pizza (with no cheese!) and Tacos (another duh.) Looking forward to: Liquid Gold Dressing Beet Dressing (!?!) Lemon Teasecake Chocolate Mint Nut Bars Cheez-A-Roni (again, no cheese?!?) Warm Sesame Noodles etc.

    This is the second time I've read this book (library copy) since my nine-year old child decided to be a vegetarian approximately 3 months ago. While a lot of this book seems to be directed at parents who are making the vegetarian decision for their children, and there is a lot more parenting advice in here than I want, overall, I found the information very helpful in my particular situation of wanting to make sure I know how to feed my child who no longer will eat meat.

Also, some kid-friendly recipes in the back.

    A little heavy on the emphasis of traditional reasons to be vegetarian but once you get past that there are some great tips on nutrition, conflict resolution, how to view food, and our relationships with food. Also good information for parents who are not vegetarian but whose children have decided to be and how to make sure they are well nourished. Includes a bunch or recipes.

    I'm already well aware of most of what's in this book, although it does give helpful advice on how to respond to naysaying, etc. when you inform people that your family (including your child) eats a vegan diet. The book has some recipes in it that aren't vegan and that include a lot of refined sugars, juices, etc. that my family doesn't use.

    So far, the book has taught me how to deal with scrutinizing family members that are having trouble accepting my recent change toward vegetarianism
