Hi guys. I am newly raw and have been vegan over a year. My nephew is 11 and has always disliked meat. Yesterday he called my mom (also nearly vegan) and told her he doesn't want to eat meat or dairy anymore. The problem is, my brother is a very SAD eater..lots of fried food, meat and junk. My brother has 4 kids (the 3 others are very little) and has a nanny watching them during the day who also cooks dinner. It is my task to try and come up with some good books/recipes for the nannies to make for my nephew. No one in that house has a clue about eating veggie.<br><br><br><br>
I was hoping someone on here could reccomend some good books for my brother and for my nephew on cooking for veggie kids. Nothing complicated and nothing raw yet...baby steps here. Thanks!! I am so proud of my nephew for coming to this conclusion on his own! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>

ALso check out <a href="http://www.veganmania.com" target="_blank">www.veganmania.com</a>. There are lots of good recipies there. (Shameless plug for Kreeli!!). The funny thing is when I saw trhis I though the books in question were story books and the like and I was excited 'cause I just put a list together for the parents of my 2nd graders.

I try to minimize my meat consumption, but occassionally fall off the wagon. My 10-year old daughter, on the other hand, has been meat-free for almost 2 years. I am very proud of her, but she is sometimes teased by other kids. I found a really fun and funny (but more importantly, really positive and re-inforcing) children's book about being vegetarian on a web-site called LULU.COM. The book is called "Mane Course", which is about a potato-eating lion cub. The book is for sale on LULU.COM, but is also entirely viewable on line for free.

Thanks guys! I wish I knew how to get through to my brother! He said my nephew can choose not to eat meat, but he doesn't get dessert if he doesn't eat what they're eating. I told him he's flat out mean. I think that's horrible. I fear my nephew is still a little too young to fight him...not sure which is more important to the little guy...skipping the meat or getting dessert.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>

This book is more for the kids but it is called Herb the Vegetarian Dragon and it is about a dragon who refuses to eat meat like the other dragons and ends up basically creating peace between the men and the dragons in the land...but it has a companion book you can order called Cooking with Herb, the Vegetarian Dragon a Cookbook for kids. With this combo you could not only promote the peaceful idea of going veggi but you could involve him in planning and cooking his own healthy meals, and if it is for kids it should be simple enough for your brother!

My vote is for "Disease Proof your Child". It has tons of scientific references AND Recipes!!<br><br><br><br>
It also comes in audio book for those that say "I don't have time to read" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I use these two cookbooks most of the time<br><br>
"Vegan Family Favorites"<br><br>
"Vegetarian Family Cookbook" ( the recipes have vegan variations included)<br><br><br><br>
both are very kid friendly, i have two little ones and they eat most everything i make from either of these books. I think I got both from amazon.com<br><br>
good luck!

'Disease-proof Your Child: Feeding Kids Right' is a great way to get through to parents. It is a very powerful and fascinating book about the importance of good childhood nutrition, and the relationship between childhood diet and adult diseases. I believe that every parent should read this book, and whenever I go to a baby shower this is the book I give as a present to the new parents. The author of the book has 4 children, and all of the recipes are oriented toward children's tastes and dietary needs.
