The really disappointing part were the recipes. There are very few of them and they really suck. I'm interested in health. Many people approach veganism because of their strongly compassionate views towards animals. I think that's great but you shouldn't inflict that by itself on your children without considering their health. As far as I'm concerned the recipes don't reflect much improvement over a typical meat-eating menu. Cakes with three cups of sugar, processed fake vegan cheeses and fake processed vegan "meats" abound. Vegan kids NEED to like and eat lots of legumes, this is essential for good nutrition and ANY kid, vegan or not, brought up from day 1 with lots of legumes will love them. These authors assume that kids don't or won't like them and include a recipe on how to "hide" the legumes. I'm sorry but I just don't think cakes, cookies and fake meat and cheese products are going to give kids the nutritional foundation they need, nor the appreciation of tastes and textures they need to truly appreciate the joy of eating as a celebration of life.
VERY disappointing book.
I thought the authors took a VERY practical position on feeding children - it was clear they are actually parents and know that kids can be very picky eaters or that kids sometimes have textural issues, etc. I thought they had a proactive yet realistic approach to feeding childen vegan diets. They offered a lot of tools and tips [things that I think would actually work, even with the most persnickity child].
I think the book was honest too - it did not gloss over the problems that could come along with being a vegan parent - including nutritional deficits. It offered good advice on avoiding these pitfalls and on being vigilant to insure that your child is as healthy as possible. It was fair and balanced in my opinion.
I don't think Michael's negative review [titled "Very Disappointed"] is fair or accurate - there is a lot of info included in this book and it is geared towards real parents with real children [and no, not all children who are raised eating beans from birth like them as preschoolers - I have more than one child who was raised eating legumes from the time they were 9 months old who will now not touch a bean to save their lives]. I thought the recipes were fun and simple enough to do on a busy weeknight - which is what most parents are looking for in recipes.Read more ›
