    -Raising Vegetarian Children is the ultimate guide for fit healthy families. It should be required reading for every parent whether vegetarian or not!

    -Jay Gordon, M.D., F.A.A.P., I.B.C.L.C
    . . . a must-have for anyone who understands that how we feed our children says a lot about who they will become. This is THE book for anyone wanting practical and down-to-Earth help in performing the most important job in the world.

    -John Robbins, author of bestsellers Diet for a New America and The Food Revolution
    Here parents will find responsible, caring advice on how to:

  • Respond to criticism from family and friends about their choice or their child's choice
  • Respect and support their child's decision to go vegetarian even if they themselves will remain meat-eaters
  • Prevent their child from feeling isolated from family or friends because of his vegetarian lifestyle
  • Insure that school officials and caregivers understand and respect their child's dietary wishes and needs
  • Cope with dining out in non-vegetarian restaurants
  • Celebrate holidays that traditionally involve eating meat

    If parents who live a vegetarian lifestyle choose the same for their child, other family members may shake their heads in disapproval. It's no easier if a kid announces he's sworn off meat and his family members are confirmed carnivores. Using the strategies in Raising Vegetarian Children, readers can ease family tensions and learn to accommodate the nutritional and emotional needs of their vegetarian off spring. This all-inclusive title also includes tasty recipes the whole family will enjoy.
