Very informative and well writen I highly recommend it. So far, the book has taught me how to deal with scrutinizing family members that are having trouble accepting my recent change toward vegetarianism When parents choose a vegetarian lifestyle for their child, it can set family fingers wagging in dietary disapproval It s no easier on steak loving parents when Junior announces he s sworn off meat With the strategies in Raising Vegetarian Children, parents can ease family tensions and learn to accommodate the nutritional and emotional needs of their vegetarian offspringIt includes a detailed explanation of the Vegetarian Food Pyramid and its vitamin and protein rich foods, allays concerns over dietary gaps, and is packed with recipes that will please any growing vegetarian, from infant to teenager Will be a great resource to me in the future. Very insightful.
