A great website on raising the family vegetarian

Posted by Nirmala N.

I was raised vegetarian but I didn't have the greatest experience in terms of making sure I had a balanced diet (I had lots of problems like anemia and general low energy, etc.) so I was happy to find this book: Raising Vegetarian Children, by Jo Stepaniak.

I don't have any kids (yet) but I have a baby nephew who my sister wants to raise vegetarian, so I'm definitely going to pass on the book. It's supposed to be one of the most comprehensive sources on how to do stuff like the following:

  • 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

Jo Stepaniak is one of the great vegetarian/vegan authors. Here is a link to information about her other books, including her classic The Ultimate Uncheese Cookbook.
