I am working with a group on an up-and-coming website that will be tailored towards vegetarian and vegan families.  I'm branching out today to get your thoughts on topics that you would like to see more information on.  A short sample list of type of content we plan to cover:
 

  • Veganizing Your Daycare
  • Simple Vegan Recipes Your Kids Will Actually Eat 
  • Real Life Pregnancy Stories
  • Vegan Kids, Non-Vegan Birthday Parties
  • Tips for Veg/Omni Mixed Families
  • "Vegan Mom, RD": health and nutrition advice column
  • Top Kid-Friendly Vegan Restaurants
  • Raising Veg Kids with Disabilities 
  • Throwing a Vegan Baby Shower
  • Veg Family Activism
  • Best Gifts for the New Vegan Family
  • And so much more!  
     

The site will also have a community area to connect with other veg*an parents.  I already spoke to Werewolf Girl about this and she said that mentioning about the forum isn't against guidelines since I'm not just trying to steal all the members away from here at VB lol.  In fact, just the opposite -- I have been a member here on and off since this site began in 2000 and have sent many people here for help :).

Anyhow, I would just love some feedback of types of content you'd like to see on a family-focused veg*an site or ideas that you think would be helpful for the forums.  Thanks so much!

I wanted to touch on this one really quick just to let you know that we will also be having a "tribe" on the forums (a thread for like-minded parents) that will be solely focused on adoption and foster care.  We felt this was extremely important!  Glad to see others feel that way as well.
