Tons on information that is easy to understand.

I was really disappointed that many receipes called for dairy as it is not just my opinion but fact that diary is not benefical and can cause much more harm than good.

I just finished reading this book, and I wish I had it when my daughter was born!
We becams vegetarian (nearly vegan) over the last year or so, and that's why I decided to read this book: even though my daughter is no longer a baby (she's 2 and half), I wanted to start from scratch with the info on vegetarian nutrition for children.
This book offers a wealth of information on macro- and micro-nutrients and on all staple foods for a vegetarian/vegan baby. There's plenty of info on grains, vegetables, beans and nuts, fruits, and all vitamin and minerals necessary for a baby to thrive. I found the info on grains particularly interesting, as it went into grains I have never heard of or was not very familiar with and showed the ideal sequence to introduce the various grains, from the lightest and gluten free to the more common, glutinous corn and wheat.
Because even in omnivorous families, meat is one of the last items introduced to a baby, I think this is a great resource for any parent, vegetarian or not, as fruits, vegetables and grains are usually introduced first in any case, and this book will explain you how and when it's best to introduce each of those foods, also taking into consideration the prevention or spotting of possible allergies or intolerances.
The book also offers ideas for menus for your baby, and at the end there is a useful FAQ section.
A great book, which I am planning to buy as a gift the next time a friend is pregnant.

Format: Paperback
The New Vegetarian Baby is a must have for families raising vegetarian children. It offers detailed information about the nutritional needs and requirments for infants and toddlers. Helpful information regarding nutritional guidlines for preganant and lactating women are also reviewed. This book includes information on other topics, ranging from managing home and work to weaning and development. There are a few recipes with sample feeding menus, but it is more of a reference book than a cookbook. Interesting topics combined with easy reading make this book a recommended choice for vegetarian families.

Format: Paperback
Upon borrowing Sharon Yntema's original book from my local library and finding it very useful, I decided to buy my own copy. That's when I saw that there was a "new and improved" edition, so I bought that. I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as the first.
This book is Yntema's book, rewritten by Beard-- and I like Yntema's narration much more than I do Beard's. While it's very nice to have more recent nutrition facts at my fingertips, I don't enjoy the way they are presented in a staunchly pro-vegan monologue. While I think it's very important for vegan parents to have this support for raising their babies, I find that I miss the support I received reading about Yntema's own journey raising a healthy vegetarian child.
I will keep the copy that I have of this book, to turn to when I have a question about nutrition. But I will be buying a copy of the original version, to turn to when I need reminding that raising a happy and healthy child on a vegetarian diet is easier than all of the RDAs, DRIs, ESADDIs, and EMRs out there make it seem.

I have the original 1980 version of this book and raised both of my babies, now 25 and 28, with it and they were the healthiest babies you ever saw. One is still lacto-ovo-pesce vegetarian, and the other has started eating poultry within the past few years. My nephew's wife just had a baby and I am sending her this book with my complete endorsement.

When I bought this book off this site I expected a vegetarian cookbook for infants(because it appeared in such a section)When I received it I was surprised to see that the least it had was recepies. My first reaction was of disappointment but as I started reading it (after all what else could I do) I found it a very essential book if you want to raise a vegetarian child. It has the tools you need along with pediatrician counseling to help your baby strive in such a diet. It is specially helpful to ward off those family members that think your going to starve your child to death by making him a vegetarian.

Once you get past the beginning part of the book that is pretty much tables and charts of nutrients, this book gets quite interesting and actually readable. This is a terrific resource for parents in need of support when choosing a vegetarian or vegan diet for their child.

This comprehensive books guides parents who are raising vegetarian children. Especially helpful is the advice for vegans who must be especially conscientious in making sure their children can all the necessary nutrients and calories. This was an invaluable source when writing my cookbook, Simply Natural Baby Food, as I wanted to concentrate on vegetarian and vegan recipes.
