As parents raising children on a plant-based diet, the question of protein is always present. At first we question ourselves. After researching we come to understand how a whole-foods vegan diet provides ample protein, and are (usually!) at ease with the issue. Yet, the question remains, as we are often asked about protein by friends, family, and also new vegetarians and vegans.
Other than recipe emails, protein for kids is the question I receive most from readers.
What are some protein-rich foods I cam give my kids? What are recipes kids will love? What foods do your kids like most, Dreena?
So, you will enjoy this special post that I’ve written for Today’s Parent:
