If you’re raising veggie kids right now or plan on starting a family soon, you may want to join The Vegetarian Resource Group’s online parents list. See: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/vrgparents/

This group now has over 1,500 families participating. A wide range of questions are raised and parents quickly respond with supportive and practical advice from their own experience raising veggie kids. Some questions have included:

  • Parent looking to relocate to a veg-friendly area to raise family.
  • Someone looking for green bed for child that is moving out of
    their crib.
  • Someone looking for help to raise hypoglycemic child veggie.
  • Parent asked if it was worth it economically to join a CSA Farm.
  • Parent raising kid veggie without soy asked for suggestions on

  • Searching for natural alternatives to give a child with a stuffy
    nose and cough.
  • Kids looking for veggie pen pals.
  • What’s a reasonable food budget for a vegan family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids)?
