Our goal is to help busy parents navigate the world of vegetarianism and veganism. This site is targeted at non-vego parents and carers of kids who decide they are (or want to be) vegetarian or vegan.
Whether it’s due to growing awareness of issues such as animal welfare or environment, peer pressure or for dietary and health reasons, if you find yourself faced with having to feed your kid vegetarian or vegan it can be pretty daunting. That was me a few years ago.
I realised pretty quickly that my other half’s solution of weeknight meat and 3 veg, minus the meat was probably not going to cut it in the nutrition stakes (no, not steaks). Nor, were the store bought, pre-made, highly processed, fake meat products. So I set out to find some recipes to fill the gap (and the young tummies).
There are squillions of great vegetarian and vegan recipes on the internet, and nearly as many recipe books, so on one hand it was pretty easy, on the other I had to wade through quite a lot of rubbish to get to, what I feel are, good recipes. I have also developed and modified several recipes of my own. When it’s possible, I like to make the vegetable protein source interchangeable animal protein, and by doing so satisfy the whole family.
The basic rules for the site are as follows;
- straight forward recipes
- easy to source ingredients
- no waffling on
- no preaching
- useful unbiased information
I would love to hear your feedback.
