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/

  • 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.

    nose and cough.
