“Destined to become a classic, this is the book vegan parents have been waiting for. And who knew? A vegan mom started a blog describing the lunches she made for her son for one school year, and it won the 2006 Bloggie Award for “Best Food Blog” (not “Best Vegetarian Food Blog”, but “Best Food Blog”, period!)

This book will continue delighting with recipes that are as innovative, kid-pleasing, and healthful as they are delicious.” – Bryanna Clark Grogan, author of Nonna’s Italian Kitchen, Authentic Chinese Cuisine for the Contemporary Kitchen, and 6 more vegan cookbooks
