Format: Paperback
First off, being 7 years and innumerable cookbooks into parenthood, I am automatically suspicious of ANY cookbook claiming to have recipes "your kids will love!" It's a marketing gimmick; no one can truly claim it because kids are so darn different and impossible to predict or categorize. I'd love a cookbook to be honest and say things like, "three actual kids liked this recipe", or better yet, "three out of ten kids said they liked it after we shoved it down their throat five times in two months." I would buy that book. I digress.

When my 6-year-old told us she wanted to be vegetarian, we were supportive. We're major meat eaters but we all agreed we could go meatless more often and adjust some of our family habits to accomodate her. I'm a decent cook but haven't worked much with tofu and I thought I'd check out a few veg cookbooks to get some more ideas. This one looked promising from high reviews. My daughter's somewhat picky, and like most of us eats with her eyes first, so I told her when the cookbook came we could look through it together and try what looked good.

But there are NO PHOTOS. NONE except the cute front cover. It's printed on b&w text paper, like a regular book with no pictures. There are some unrelated kid scribbly drawings in there to take up space between recipes, but no photos! We were both bummed.

So then we resorted to reading through the recipes. I was still hopeful until I got a few pages in. Really? They took up print space to write a recipe for stirring applesauce and brown rice together? "Rice Surprise", page 27. Or "Firefighter French Fries", p.46, which is cutting up sweet potatoes into strips and baking them. Yeah sweet potato oven fries are good but I don't need a cookbook to tell me how to make them.

I wish I'd found this book years ago not for my kids, but for me. The meals are easy to prepare, and I LOVE the section on packable stuff. Also, the recipes are visibly labeled: vegan, vegetarian, vegan option. Helpful for me since I don't do dairy.
Many, many thanks to the authors for putting together a clear, concise "idea book" of quick meals that can be put together with normal vegetarian staples rather than exotic ingredients.

I bought this book in an attempt to find meal ideas for both my husband and I who are vegetarians, and my 6 year old and eight year old who are more omnivorous. As a registered dietitian, I look for recipes that are lower in fat and include a wide range of grains, fruits and vegetables. Some of the recipes in this book worked very well - we all loved the Brown Rice Fruit Salad, and the recipe for Cartwheel carrots was a hit. Recipes are "kid-tested", but my kids still can't be convinced to love okra, eggplant or spinach casserole. I have managed to sneak tofu into their diet in recipes like Tofu Spuds. This book was a worthwhile buy, if only for the fact that my kids found enough recipes they liked to plan the family menu for a week, even though some meals were supplemented with chicken fingers or fish sticks.

This book is EXACTLY what I was looking for when I was searching for yummy veggie dishes that my kids would eat.
All the recipes are easy, simple, and so far, yummy! Just ask my kids, who are 2 and 4. Picky eaters who love the recipes I have made from this book so far. ESPECIALLY the grilled cheese and apple recipe (my favorite too, ;))
Absolutely worth the money!

Typical vegetarian fare. I was looking for easy, simple recipes for my 5-year-old, who refuses to eat meat, yet prefers chips and ice cream to healthy foods. The recipes in this book include bean sprouts and other not-so-kid-friendly ingredients. They just don't impress my son. I much prefer "Feeding the Healthy Vegetarian Family" by Ken Haedrich.

I've been a vegetarian for a long time and am sort of tired of the "same old stuff." Even though my kids are grown and gone, I bought this book because it promised simple dishes kids would like. I readily admit I am an uninspired cook and the state of my pantry usually rivals Mother Hubbard's. But this book, as promised, did contain many new and easy ideas and combinations that are quick to prepare from common ingredients. Many of the recipes use meat substitutes, which in my mind is "cheating." The way I see it, vegetarianism is a meatless way of eating, not making traditionally meat-based dishes with substitutes. Except for that personal little quirk, I'd rate it 5 stars. I appreciate the variety this book will introduce to my diet. I also really appreciate the "do it because it's healthful" slant of the book, rather than the usual "do it because if you don't you're a bad person" focus of so many other vegetarian cookbooks.

A lot of other veggie cookbooks have meals that while delicious, include unusual ingredients, and lack the foods you grew up on. This book has great recipes that compare to things you loved when you were a kid and include ingredients already in your kitchen. My little one really enjoys the stuff I have made from this book and as a working mom I appreciate the quick easy recipes.

I'm sorry to say that I complletely underestimated this book when I first purchased it. I was teaching a class on nutrition to children and it had come highly recommended. I'm embarrassed to say, but half way through my first day of teaching it to children I realized how this book had information that I needed! No exotic ingredients, excellent instructions, and a fun read. I had the pleasure of speaking with Jaque Pepin once and I mentioned this book to him...he started grinning immediately. It turned out that he'd had a similar experience with this book. It comes with my highest recommendation!
