    "Great Tips for Vegetarians"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, This book offers comprehensive guidance and great tips to vegetarians. The information shared answers most of the questions running through the minds of vegetarian people (especially on nutrition, recipes and children foods). This audiobook would therefore be of great assistance to my vegetarian friends and am sure they would like it as much as I did.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The recipes. We have tried most of them with my wife and they are so delicious and easy to prepare.


    What about Lillie Ricciardi’s performance did you like?

    The perfomance by Lillie was great with a smooth voice that made listening to be so enjoyable.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Homemade food for children is possible and very easy to do!


    Any additional comments?

    This book covers the entire world of nutrition for all ages including babies and toddlers. We have been trying to become complete vegetarians with my wife and it have not being easy. However, this book have assisted us much. The book is packed with comprehensive tips that have been easy to apply. We also have a small kid and we had been wondering what to do about her. This book gave us an insight on making our own homemade food for our baby with all the required nutritional supplements. We have also been able to incorporate enough proteins, iron and nutrition in our diet and this has made our bodies to be healthier.

    Being a vegetarian, Kate uses her experience and knowhow to give helpful advice. She also uses a simple language that can be easily understood by an average person-there are no nonsense jargons and technical terms. The books flows from chapter to chapter with ease and without losing the connection. We have learnt much with my wife and are already applying most of the things especially for our little baby. And the homemade recipes are so lovely, you have to try them! Highly recommend to all vegetarians.

    "Really grateful for this, lots of great ideas!"
    Any additional comments?

    With a young child (and another one on the way!!!), i was concerned how to bring the vegetarian life to him, both in relation to his diet (and making sure he got all the nutrients etc he needs) and how to deal with him being at school and around other people. It is not the easiest thing but understanding how best to tackle it is important. I got recommended this book by a friend and i am very grateful for it. Packed with really good and actionable advice.

    "Very articulate"
    Any additional comments?

    We have two young children who are approaching school age and we had been debating a lot about how to tackle vegetarianism and how to talk to them about it. The book gave us a lot of great information on how to deal with it in the family, at school and around their friends. Awkward things like other kids birthday parties is now a lot easier to deal with. Enjoyed the narration.

    Any additional comments?

    Raising a vegetarian child can be tough. We have already had a few issues with our son starting school. Not just the practical side, but the mental side too. Talking to him about it, giving him advice on how to talk to other kids etc etc. This really helped us all a lot, put our minds at ease about some stuff and also has the bonus of some recipes and food ideas to try out.

    Yes. This book is a great starter guide for parents of vegetarians and it covers all ages. It covers basic nutritional needs and great ideas for making sure your kids get everything they need from their food. Definitely a must have for any vegetarian kitchen.

    "Great Tips for a Healthy Start"

    Kate Anderson couldn't have made it any easier for parents who are considering raising their kids as vegetarians. This short audiobook is loaded with tips and insight and I really enjoyed it.

    Lillie Ricciardi does a fantastic job narrating and the information is so rich, I found myself really wishing that I'd thought of this well before now. The food supply is so questionable and living a life that eliminates meat can only help the system stave off a lot of the problems found in our systems. It will always be best to give kids a good start.

    If you're looking for a book with great tips on either starting down this path with your kids or even making the transition, this is a great one! You won't be disappointed!

    "A vegetarian bible"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    My wife and I are vegetarians since our college days and we were looking for a vegan comprehensive guide that will provide a practical diet plan for our children. This audio book offered some wonderful recipes that addressed some of our nutritional concerns. I have read other similar books and this one is on the TOP of my list. I highly recommend this material as a must-have resource for families living a vegetarian lifestyle.

    "More information than you need"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but only those with kids considering a vegetarian life. I myself went through a time when I was vegetarian and would have loved a guide like this, I was lucky to get a paragraph about what extras I needed


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Raising Vegetarian Children?

    That the kids are not at a disadvantaged and if done right it is actually better for you and its more down to diet than having meat and fish.


    Which character – as performed by Lillie Ricciardi – was your favorite?

    No character but Lillie was an excellent medium for passing on information in the book


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me happy and realize I was right all the way along and vegetarians do not have to be the pale and lackluster as portrayed in the media.

    "Very very good!"
    What made the experience of listening to Raising Vegetarian Children the most enjoyable?

    Enjoyable is not the right word - i found it very HELPFUL though, that is a much better way to describe it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to it over a few sittings, so that i could try out the different ideas.


    Any additional comments?

    Very very helpful book for anyone raising kids in a vegetarian (or vegan) household. Deals with a lot of the issues that can be troublesome as well as giving some very helpful recipes.

    FINALLY some great advice, which i really needed as I have a young family, bringing them up as vegetarians. Helped us deal with a lot of awkward subjects such as dealing with friends parties and other social occasions. Liked the narrators voice, very easy to follow.

    "Great advice!"
    What did you like most about Raising Vegetarian Children?

    This audiobook gets straight to the point. It gave me all the information I needed and expected from it. I have to admit, I preferred this book to others of its type because it didn't go too far into medical lingo that most of us can barely understand. In my opinion, it gave just enough information about vital nutrients and focused more on what to actually feed my children.

    Lillie was just the narrator and this book was not fictional so the wasn't really any characters. However, the perfomance by Lillie was great with a smooth voice that made listening to be so enjoyable.

    It made me happy for learning so much in such a small time,

    Any additional comments?

    If you have a veggie family you will understand the struggles, both mentally and physically. Dealing with how your kids interact with the world and all the situations they will encounter is not easy...but this book made it SO much easier and enjoyable!

    Vegetarianism is a wonderful thing. Embrace it.

    "Liked this!"
    If you could sum up Raising Vegetarian Children in three words, what would they be?

    Helpful, real, genuine.


    What does Lillie Ricciardi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Umm dunno what this mean!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I doubt it would be a film ha!


    Any additional comments?

    I found this helpful. I have a 18 month old son and have been debating about the way to bring him up (as a vegetarian), both in terms of diets and how he approaches the subject at school and elsewhere. For such a short and cheap book I took a lot from this.
