Our Vegan Kids

Our boys have always eaten vegan meals. They take a plant-based lunch to school every day, they eat vegan snacks, we make delectable breakfasts and easy kid-friendly vegan dinners. Over the years we've mindfully trained them to love a variety of ethnic foods and flavors. 

Orion's favorite vegan meals are YVF Lasagne, Miso Soup, Make-Your-Own Vegan Burritos with our home-made Refried Black Beans, and Unrolled Sushi Salad.

Nikko's favorites include Pesto Gnocchi, YVF Chocolate Cream Pie, and Enchiladas. 

Do you wonder if a plant-based diet meets the requirements for growing minds and bodies? The answer is: it can be. No matter what dietary category you identify with, you can have holes in the nutrition you need. As a science/health-focused family with a history of 26+ years vegan, we know that eating across a broad range of foods and supplementing nutrients that are less common in a vegan diet provides all our kids need to thrive in every way. 

Further proof abounds with The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics—the world's largest organization of food and nutrition professionals—stating that “vegetarian, including vegan, diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits for the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. These diets are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, adolescence, older adulthood, and for athletes.”

If you understand the Fundamentals of Nutritious Plant-based Cooking (yes, this is a course you can take with us! Learn more here) you can feel confident that you are not only meeting your family's nutrition needs for optimal development and disease prevention but exceeding them. Knowing you're providing the best foundation for your child's growth sets your heart at ease because as parents, we all want to give our kids the best chance to be their best selves. A smart plant-based diet can easily do this.
