I don't know how you get your kids to eat all that? Are they naturally egar to eat raw. I don't think my son would even try half of that. It looks soo good but my son loves very few raw things
Same here. My kids won't eat anything raw that is prepared as a dish, I do good enough to get them to snack on just raw fruits throughout the day. And we've been a vegan family their entire lives!
They will even tell my Mom when she comes home (Nana lives with us) that they are hungry and all they had all day was FRUIT and it's the way they say it to her they make it sound like I starved them! We tried a whole 2 weeks of nothing but fruit/veggies all day until dinner and they did! She came home from work and they hounded her with "NANA! We're HUNGRY!!! All we've had all day is FRUIT!!!!" with sad puppy faces included!
So yeah, when I try the raw on them,my kids think I'm mean/cruel and starving them.
And yes. When we did that 2 week trial, they had PLENTY to eat, they ate on it all day, and STILL told her they were hungry/starving and all they had was OMG fruits and veggies OMG.
Also, EPPP, that stuff looks great but I know if I made some of it and serve dit as "dinner" to my kids, as soon as they were done, they'd wait about an hour and then start whining that they are hungry and would ask me "What's for dinner???" and if I told them that the healthful stuff they just ate was their dinner, my oldest would argue that is surely was NOT dinner, just a healthy snack.
I totally agree with the above poster... My boys (5,3, 19m.) would be so hungry shortly after that. Is there a transitional period of time from vegetarian to raw or (like us... ) SAD to raw where the raw just doesn't fill you up, then all of the sudden less is more?
I wonder sometimes if my kids will ever transition more to raw...
Some neighbors regularly feed their little baby a baby bottle filled with sugar water. What kind of start is that ?
This is a nice example of what I send with my son to preschool:) I do try to use glass containers and jars - The conatainer Store .99 - 1.99.
1. mana bread
2. cinnamon crispies - RFRW
3. lara bars
4. tomatoes & cucumber w/sea salt
5. freeze dried fruit crips
6. tamari pumpkin seeds
10. Bottle water on side
11. green smoothie (in front compartment behind lara bars)

1c. brazil Nuts
4 lg Bananas
1/2c. Almond milk
1 date, pitted, soft or softened
Wizz all in FP till very smooth. Pour onto Teflex sheets into rounds of 1/4-3/8". Allow to dehydrate 9hrs/115 degrees, overnight works well. Flp onto screen continue to dehydrate 2-3 hrs.
I added blueberries and used a large round cookie cutter to make shapes.
I just make these before bed and flip them very early in the a.m. these are best eaten fresh. I personally love them sprinkled with chopped pecans as they give a great texture compliment to the soft pancake. This batter lasts at least a week in the coldest part of the fridge.

EPPP, do you use an icecream maker for your vice cream? Which brand did you buy. I've the "Vice cream" book, now I need a good, dependable ice cream maker.
Does anyone own a Kitchen aid Ice cream maker?
Yes, I use the Cuisinart "bowl in freezer" sort. Not expensive at all a no brainer maker. I know Williams Sonoma have it for about $50 but I am sure you can get it elsewhere for cheaper; perhaps Target.
