“The Smart Parent’s Guide to Raising Vegan Kids”
The number of families raising vegan and plant-based children is on the rise and, as parents, the ability to find reputable resources and helpful tools to guide us in raising our families is invaluable! Eric Lindstrom’s latest book, “The Smart Parent’s Guide to Raising Vegan Kids,” is a great resource to have on hand. Not only is it filled with educational information but it also includes inspirational stories, tips, and even some comic relief! The greatest part, even if you’ve been vegan for a while, you can still benefit from this book. Why? Because it also focuses on parenting, and no matter how much experience one has, you can never know it all! I currently have an 18-month-old child and I am expecting my second baby and I learn something new every day. This book has given me so many ideas and, most importantly, made me laugh, which is something we all need to make time for!
When I asked Eric why he wrote this book, he said, “I wanted to write a book that went beyond diet. There are some simple recipes and plenty of nutrition information throughout, from some of the leading names in plant-based nutrition, but I wanted a book that also helps connect the dots for sustainability and shed light on animal rights. I think I’ve written the book that will help all parents raise vegan kids.”
He also noted how appreciative he was to everyone who contributed to the book. I have to agree. The contributors really help make the book what it is. Having factual and experience-based information from people like Dr. Tom Campbell (medical doctor), Dr. Neal Barnard (nutrition researcher), and Claire Lundy Peters (vegan chef and parent), ties together all of the important information needed to raise plant-based children. It also strengthens the concept that raising a child takes a village and that by coming together and sharing all of our experiences and knowledge, we can help and support one another on our journey of parenthood!
I highly recommend this book to parents (or those who plan to be parents) at any stage in their plant-based journey. Whether you’ve raised vegan children since conception or are trying to transition your 10-year-old, there is something in this book for you!
