I need ideas for Nick. He hates meat and I am not going to make him eat it, but I need ideas on what to feed him. What do your vegetarian kids eat. Anyone have some good, kid friendly recipes?

Hmm...what DOES he like? Is it the texture, or the flavour that he dislikes of the meat?

Off the top of my head, Raine's (who's 2) favorites are:

Grilled cheese with soy bacon and steamed brocolli.

Veggie dogs and steamed veggies.

Soy "chicken" nuggets and sweet potato baked fries.

Homemade Mac and cheese (sauce is just a little margerine, cream, cheese and a bit of ground soy.)

Jam and almond butter (PB if your son eats it yet is better protein, I have a lot of peanut allergies in my family, so she is kept away from it)sandwiches.

Whole wheat pasta with tomatoe sauce and Caesar salads.

Pizzas on whole wheat pitas with soy pepperoni, cheese, spinach, and tomatoes.

Veggie pot pie.

Homemade soup with rice, barley, carrots, potatoes, "chicken", and celery, and whatever else I have kicking around.

That's all I can think of that she likes at the moment. All of the soy products that we use are Yves. They have no artifical flavors, colors or preservatives.

I think Rainesmommy's ideas are great. There is a great book, Super Baby Food, they have tips and suggestions for up to (I think) 3 yrs old. I constantly borrow it from the library. They have vegetarian, and non vegetarian ideas. One veggie food that most people think is great (but it has a lot of additives), is anything Morningstar. It is in the frozen foods area. My doc. recommends for my oldest, (he is a vegetarian), eggs, specifically Omega3 eggs, or ones with DHA in them. THis is great for growing brains. You can make omelets, french toast, egg sandwiches, scrambled eggs, etc. A fake meat that my/kids doc. (naturopathic doctor) recommends is Quorn. It is also in the frozen foods area, and it is pretty tasty with all of the additives. It is also NOT soy, which is a common allergin.

Oh yeah, I just remembered SMOOTHIES! They are so great for jamming in nutrients, Raine loves them! In hers I usually put bananas, strawberries, blueberries, regular yorgurt, OJ, and some nut butter for protein. I've been toying with the idea of adding a little flax oil, but I don't want to ruin a good thing

Yeah, smoothies are great. I put yogurt, fruit, milk a tad of sugar and some flax seed oil in mine. Go ahead and add the flax seed oil RainesMommy, it won't be noticed.

Check out this website:
The website is called Veggie Kids and has recipes. I hope this helps!!

http://my.execpc.com/~veggie/tips.html

How about making Veggi Pockets? Stuffed in Pita bread or even rolled in a wrap?

Ingredients can be whatever he likes.

Example of fillings:

Assorted fresh vegetables (cucumbers, carrots, avocados, peppers, etc. whatever he likes)
Lettuce
Croutons (optional)
Cheese
salad dressing (whatever he likes)
