books on vegan pregnancy & child raising
my husband and i are thinking about having a baby & i was wondering if anyone knew any good books on having a healthy vegan pregnancy & raising vegan kids. any help would be really appreciated. ;D
awwwwwwww...a baby :)
well the only advice i can offer is to get in touch with your health food store people and see what they know, they usually have information that is really helpful
check out the library and call your local book store and see what they have available...
sorry i can't be more help, when i had my daughter i was not a vegan, i have only been vegan for a year now, vegetarian for 2 years
bless you and good luck!!
My sister is raising her two children vegan and found these books useful:
Raising a vegan child in a non vegan world
Super baby food (substituting soymilk for milk)
I am a vegetarian, not a vegan, but I found "The Vegetarian Mother's Cookbook: Whole Foods To Nourish Pregnant And Breastfeeding Women - And Their Families" book EXTREMELY helpful. It provided good information about nutrition and ease of preparation as well as excellent recipes. It is divided by stages of pregnancy/child-raising, which I also found helpful. Many of the recipes are vegan or are easily adapted to a vegan diet. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0972469060/sr=8-1/qid=1140398291/ref=sr_1_1/103-8841227-5992619?%5Fencoding=UTF8
Also scroll down on the link for The Vegetarian Mother's Cookbook- the responses that the book received from other readers are much more comprehensive and well-written than my own description of this fantastic book. Good luck and congratulations!
