Our kids, their kids, their friends, and their friends kids have thrived on these recipes for over 40 years.
Our easy kid friendly recipes serve up the necessary nutrients in foods that vegetarian kids love and will reliably eat.
Someday, a miracle will happen, and children will love asparagus. Meanwhile, let them eat pasta! But seriously, vegetables can be unpopular even with veg kids.
But for most veg parents, eating healthy means eating vegetables. It's a conundrum! How do you get your kids to eat healthy?

Most children have a list of un-favorite foods, and vegetables are high on the list, even for vegetarian or vegan kids. But for most parents, children eating healthy means kids eating vegetables. How do you reconcile those opposing points of view?
To an adult, some of these recipes may be carb heavy & high cal, but children need carbs for energy, and healthy fats to develop their brains. Kids are 10 times more active than adults (hopefully), plus they're growing, so they also need lots of protein, vitamins, and minerals too.
Pack the most nutrition you can get away with into the foods that your vegetarian or vegan children will actually eat, and make sure they're taking a nutritional supplement.
Younger kids like simple foods best. They want to identify and easily separate the components of their meals, and no surprises. Until around age 10, my grandkids would always eat their tofu burgers separated into parts on their plates. Plain oatmeal was preferred to oatmeal with raisins, and they didn't want milk and sugar mixed in. They would eat baked squash, but forget pumpkin pie!
