Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

"The strongest statement of caring you can offer is a healthy vegetarian diet." Yntema is a committed speaker for the whole realm of vegetarianism, encompassing animal rights and world hunger as well as simply providing an alternative to eating meat, poultry, and fish. She covers a lot of territory, meandering from manners at mealtime to child development (five pages), peer pressure, the history of vegetarianism, children's health, and moral development and social responsibility. Books are listed throughout the text as well as in a bibliography. For comprehensive collections. Patty Miller, New Hampshire Vocational-Technical Coll. Lib., Laconia

More About the Author

When I was pregnant with my son in 1977, vegetarianism was considered an iffy diet, and there was no available source of information for raising a vegetarian child. So I did my own research and was fortunate enough to have a publisher friend who felt it was important to share that research with other parents. 37 years later, my son is an adult vegetarian (actually mostly vegan) with an amazing partner who is also vegetarian. They love cooking together, and make delicious nutritious meals with incredibly attractive presentations that they sometimes photo and post on Instagram. I want them to create a vegetarian/vegan cookbook, but they have jobs they love and don't want to take on that kind of a project at this point.

Now that my son has grown up, my focus has turned from nutrition to massage, and I have been working as a licensed massage therapist in a physical therapy office for the last 15 years. It is terrific job and I hope I'll still be at it when I'm 90. My latest project is working on a booklet about "birder's neck" - that painful side-effect that birders get when they look up into the trees for too long.

I am grateful that Vegetarian Baby (updated version with Christine Beard) is still available and suspect that new parents are enjoying the pro-vegetarian culture that exists today where this book is one of many on the subject. I raise my glass (a home-made Nutribullet drink) to Families and Children everywhere!

Format: Paperback
I really, really love this book. As a matter of fact, I do not know what I would have done without it when I transitioned my children to a vegetarian diet.
A vegetarian myself, I finally decided it was time to introduce this lifestyle to my kids. The catch was, I wanted to do it right. I wanted to KNOW what I was doing and how to do it perfectly so that not only where my children experiencing the healthiest diet, but also so that I knew my "stuff" when I would most likely be harrassed, or at least questioned by family, friends, or anyone about the way I chose to feed my children (and trust me, I was on all accounts).
Anyway.... I found this book, and invested my dollars in it, hoping to find all the info I needed. And I did. This book is complete with nutrition tables informing you of requirements in all vitamins and minerals, weight and height charts for kids of all ages, special considerations to be taken for veggie parents, and more. There is a section that concentrates on studies done for the past several decades, and an explanation for each.
All in all, this is a great book to have if you need some help and info about introducing and raising your children vegetarian. I reccommend it highly. If you would like a veggie kids cookbook (recipes that most kids LOVE), I also highly reccommend "Better than Peanut Butter & Jelly". Perfect duo!

As a new parent, and vegetarian, I found this book very helpful in how to deal with outings at other people homes, etc. It also deals with the validity of raising vegetarian children, a plus considering my family is supportive of our choice. A great book for anyone raising a vegetarian family!

Anything that can help a parent is a great resource to have nearby! I like the sections on quick meals for working families and alternative Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas celebrations. Very interesting!
Also, the interviews with vegetarian parents are a great sharing of information and experience.
