Healthy Eating for Life FOR CHILDREN from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

From the Foreword by Neal Barnard, M.D.:  The writing of this book was motivated by the observation that many parents are unclear about how best to nourish their children at different stages of development.  Well-intentioned parents like you want to do the very best for the long-term health and well-being of their children.  They need help knowing where to begin.

Our hope is that by assembling an expert panel of doctors and nutritionists and by providing well-researched, easy-to-read information on healthy eating during childhood, we can help you promote excellent health for your children throughout their lives.

**********

Boy I wish I’d had this book when my children were little, then I wouldn’t have been misled by my GP who pleaded with me not to make my baby vegan, saying that children need dairy for at least their first five years!  I was very young, inexperienced and, since it was way before the internet, there was no one else to ask.  It was another eleven years before we had enough information to understand that he was wrong, and our transition from vegetarianism to veganism left us feeling better than ever.

But that didn’t prevent us being misjudged by another GP when I took my youngest to the doctor when she was about 11 because she was getting recurring headaches.  I’d assumed she was suffering from migraines but as soon as the GP heard we were vegan she sucked in her breath over her teeth and said with confidence

“Calcium deficiency!”

I insisted that that wasn’t it, we get enough calcium from our fruit and vegetables, but she would not be dissuaded from her conclusion and sent us away after telling us to take some multi-vitamins, without doing any tests or examination.  Some months later, thanks to a good  GP advising us to go the optician and see if the headaches were due to a need for glasses, it was discovered that there was haemorrhaging behind her eyes caused by a benign brain tumour.

The world and medical practitioners are so much more enlightened nowadays though aren’t they?  Thanks to the internet and such widely available information shared online by vegan individuals, groups and organisations.  So you’d think that no one would be in danger of getting the kind of bad advice we got back then.

I was shocked to discover a few weeks ago that that’s not true.  A friend of mine took her eleven and a half month-old baby for her ‘one year review’ by a Health Visitor at a children’s centre in Brighton and was told she should be transitioning her baby off breast milk and onto cows’ milk – for the calcium!!!!!!!

Thankfully my friend knows better but lots of people, like me all those years ago, will be swayed by this shockingly bad advice.  That’s why this book is brilliant.  Because it comes from the Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine, written by Amy Lanou, Ph.D. who is Nutrition Director of the Physicians’ Committee (or she was when this was first published back in 2002 – oh I wish I’d had it then!) and got her doctoral degree from Cornell University, readers can rest assured that the book can be relied upon.  And it’s got so much!  From a healthy pregnancy to healthy breast feeding to healthy nutrition for your child for the rest of his or her life, this book tells you everything you need to know 🙂

And it even provides you with a ton of healthy delicious recipes:

I bought this one for my friend, but now I’m going to get another one for me!

Reflecto Girl and other stories

vegan comic book

Reflecto Girl and other stories

This is the big one! It’s like a big, hefty paper version of the Violet’s Vegan e-Comics website! (well, a lot of it anyway).

Four episodes of ‘Reflecto Girl‘, four episodes of ‘Megan & Flos‘, four episodes of ‘Venus Aqueous‘, three episodes of ‘The English Family Anderson‘, two episodes of ‘Sherman and Geynes‘ and two episodes of ‘Luke Walker: animal stick up for-er‘ (the comicbook version) are packed into this bumper comicbook.

In addition, in true 1970s comicbook style, there are puzzles, recipes and colourful ads for yummy vegan things.  This book is big, beautiful and not cheap – but come on, it’s over 400 pages of vegan fun! 😀

At £32 it’s not something anyone’s going to buy on a whim, – after all, you can read it all for free at Violet’s Vegan e-comics, – but it’s got a lot in it and if you were planning to go off-grid, you might want it 😉  Anyway, there it is 🙂

Reflecto Girl’s Lost Notebook

vegan notebook

Reflecto Girl’s Lost Notebook

Reflecto Girl, on the way to meet her future sidekick and tell him her whole story, left her notebook on the bus. She was very worried because in it she had written all about her life that year and how she’d become Reflecto Girl and things she’d done with the Dounto.  She was very concerned that this information, which was supposed to be kept secret, would fall into the wrong hands. Her friend made her feel better by telling her that as long as her real name and address were not in the book – which they weren’t, she’d made sure of that – losing it wouldn’t do any harm.

Keeping her real identity secret was the most important thing so of course she couldn’t claim the notebook from the bus depot lost property.  And that means that it’s out there, waiting for someone else to find it.

So, if you would love to learn about the girl behind Reflecto Girl; if you would to love know what her life was like before the Dounto, and where her Grandma went; if you would like to try out a couple of recipes that she made a note of; and if you love to keep a diary and would like to fill in the rest of Reflecto Girl’s book with your own notes and doodles (it’s half empty) then why don’t you pick it up?  It’s right here 😀

Luke Walker: animal stick up for-er: MY PRIVUT NOTEBOOK

veggie kid's notebook

Luke Walker: animal stick up for-er: MY PRIVUT NOTEBOOK

Luke’s notebook is for his eyes, and those of fellow veggietareun outlaws, only.  He made it out of an old maths exercise book he never used, for the purpose of privately recording the activities of his Secret Sersiety.  Luke has written quite a lot already about things he’s said and done but there is still plenty of blank space to be filled in by other members.  All young veg*ns would do well to join Luke’s band of outlaws and get a copy of this notebook.  Instructions for how to make a code maker is included so that top secret information can be kept TOP SECRET.

Luke learned some interesting things on his own about some of the people Mrs Tebbut told him about in History, things Mrs Tebbut hadn’t told him about them, and he made a note of them.
Luke wrote illustrated instructions of how to make a code maker/code breaker. Every outlaw should have one!
And there’s plenty of empty space for other sersiety members to add their own stuff. Luke drew some lines on for you.
This you can decode when you’ve made a code-breaker identical to Luke’s. Then you can write your own coded messages.
