Many vegetarian parents are anxious to feed their children a meat-free diet right from the start but worry that a vegetarian diet may not offer the equivalent range of nutrients. Baby & Child Vegetarian Recipes allays those fears totally, clearly demonstrating that for both children and adults, a vegetarian diet is indisputably a healthier option. Arranged for easy reference in four sections covering the major milestones in dietary development each section offers general nutritional guidelines, lists of foods to introduce and avoid, and includes a host of practical hints, tips and advice. Suggested weekly menu planners for each age group enable parents to tailor time and supermarket runs to provide the best possible diet for their child with the minimum of fuss and effort. Packed with over 150 quick and easy, tried-and-tested veggie recipes, and fully endorsed by The Vegetarian Society, Baby & Child Vegetarian Recipes offers parents a blue print for a healthy, varied diet that will engender a lifetime enjoyment of good, healthy and wholesome food.Stuck for ideas at tea-time? Looking for meat-free snacks for lunch? Baby and Child Vegetarian Recipes is invaluable to the vegetarian family and will quickly become and old friend in the kitchen. It is packed with more than 150 recipes for babies and toddlers, almost all accompanied and brought to life by comments from the author, Carol Timperley. Her relaxed and very personal approach to the presentation of her family favourites makes this chunky little book particularly unintimidating–something mums and dads will appreciate during the often stressful time of weaning baby and feeding young children.
The five chapters of the book, each introduced with heaps of practical advice including menu charts, cover stages in the development of a child’s eating habits from the first taste to toddlerhood. Recipes range from basic purées and staples such as macaroni cheese and bubble and squeak to the more sophisticated Hungarian stuffed marrow and avocado and cottage cheese dip. Recipes are clearly presented and include boxes in which to register your child’s reaction–no one is pretending it is always easy to feed youngsters!
An added bonus to this already excellent book are Stephen May’s humorous illustrations. The leap-frogging grains of rice and the potatoes enjoying a hot tub are bound to raise a smile and could prove useful for parents wishing to encourage an awareness of cooking in their children. As Carol Timperley says in her introduction: An appreciation of good food is one of the greatest of all gifts you can give your child.
Fully endorsed by the Vegetarian Society and approves by consultant nutritionist Jane Brophy, this book will be an inspiration to busy parents. —Dale Evans
