Haedrich states his philosophy early on: when it comes to feeding children, flavor is all that matters. Kids won't care if there's meat in the spaghetti sauce or the chili, so long as it tastes good. These recipes might not make it into the pages of the glossy gourmet magazines, but they'll have even the most picky eaters asking for seconds. The book includes recipes for snack foods, sandwiches (both hot and cold), salads and soups, main dishes, casseroles, quick breads, desserts, and much more. So whether you're looking to supplement your vegetarian diet or hoping to introduce your family to a new and healthier way of eating, Feeding the Healthy Vegetarian Family offers both helpful advice and great recipes to get you and your kids off on the right foot.
