For some people
vegetarianism is more than just a dietary decision; its a lifestyle
choice. But establishing that lifestyle within the bounds of ever-changing
family dynamics can be a challenge. Perhaps you're a new parent
concerned about imposing your vegetarian lifestyle on your baby,
or you may be the head of a meat-eating family confused by your
child's recent decision to become a vegetarian. With the compassionate,
authoritative advice in Raising Vegetarian Children, every parent--regardless
of his or her dietary preference--will discover how to achieve healthy
harmony in a vegetarian household.
recipes for everything from breads to spreads, enticing entrées
to delectable desserts, you'll meet and even exceed your child's
dietary requirements. These veggie meals will smooth an infants
transition to solid foods or soothe the most finicky teen palate.
In addition to nutritional needs, you'll learn to address the social
and emotional aspects of vegetarianism, including:
- Helping your
child cope with pressure to conform to a standard diet
that school officials, caregivers, and relatives abide by your
child's dietary wishes
- Dining out
in nonvegetarian restaurants and celebrating traditional, meat-eating
for anyone who understands that how we feed our children says a
lot about who they will become.
