The book is not all RAW VEGAN, just so you know and aren't confused.
The smoothie recipies have fun names and the others could probably modified if 100% RAW Vegan is what you are looking for for your kiddos.

you are right, yes, i should have mentioned that. i was just so excited about the cook book! kids are a little trickier and i am transitioning mine into raw. at 10 years old i don't expect them to just go cold turkey and be ok with it. i think this book will be a good start for us. this is just my personal opinionj for my children.

Thanks a bunch I love her two non-ebooks. there are several raw kids books out there but I must admit they are designed more for younger kids.

How do you start? I have 4.2 are ok my 2nd son gives me "that look" when i make a smoothie,my daughter (youngest) her diet is horrible,basicly no fruit/veg.Except for carrot,mandarins,grapes,apples.Any thing else she wont eat,yes she is made to,and she will not have dessert if she doesn't finish her meal.She has will power that girl.But any ideas to help transition children 6-12 yrs would be great.

I have found with our children, transitioning them has been easiest when I take one component out of something they are used to and switching it to raw. For example cereal and milk then becomes almond milk and cereal...when their palate accepts this, I would then move to raw granola and almond milk. You can do this with most meals, and we have had great success with it. Alissa has wonderful recipes for crackers and flat breads which you can switch from savory to sweet by simply changing the herbs to honey and cinnamon. Children LOVE the sweet flat bread with almond butter and banana or for dipping in a sweet potato "pudding." You do not have to stay totally to raw fruits and veggies, combine them with raw things that resemble cooked foods. Also go to Alissa's dessert section, she has some wonderful raw treats that your daughter might be finishing her raw dinner to get a taste of. Desserts are always a wonderful way to sway reluctant eaters :).
Hope this helps,

Thanks, I think it will help :) I havn't got Allissa's book yet,soon very soon tho.Do i need a dehydrater,or can i get by on useing the oven on low with the door open? (i read this some where,was wondering if this was true),thanks a bunch :D

Technically you don't need a dehydrator, but you will be paying a fortune in electric/gas bills keeping the oven door ajar and also you don't know what the temperature really is. If you don't have the funds to invest in an expensive dehydrator, I would recommend starting with a less expensive dehydrator that has a temperature gauge (Wal-mart sells them) until you are convinced that you would use a dehydrator on a regular basis. Then I would highly recommend an Excalibur 9 tray...mine runs 24/7 with treats for the children and non-raw friends :D . If the unit does not come with teflex sheets just use parchment paper and cut it to fit the trays...works great.
Have fun :)

Bumping this... it's still available under section "books". It's not 100% raw but it seems a good transitioning recipe book. Thanks to OP for the link even two years on :)

Just popped in to see this kids thread. Never thought much about raw food and kids. I am one of thousands of grandparents raising their gchildren. I have had my gson for almost a year. I told my children I was not raising their children except for 2 reasons. If they were sick or dead. Well my daughter is sick. Bipolar. What a job. I am old enough to be his great gmom. I am glad he is a sweet child. My daughter did a spectacular job while she was able. So the transition to me was easy. Anyhow I do feed him alot of my food. A great lover of vegys to start with. Of course like all kids he loves chicken. I am from the old school where moms cooked food. My daughter also cooked real food for him. Fast food is and was treat for him. I am now looking at how much I can incorporate raw to his diet. Will read more and keep in touch

I have used some of these with my gkids. NOT raising them, thank goodness - and bless your heart for doing it!!!! Anyway Natalia Rose was my first "love" of eating healthy, fresher. Still like much of her philosophy for people who can't or won't go all raw for whatever reason. Son and family use many of her things and it's been great for them.
As with everything else, different strokes for different folks.
