  1. Jo says:

    Just want to say that I’ve cooked a load of these over the last couple of weeks and EVERY SINGLE ONE was a hit with my often fussy 14 month old. Finally he’s getting healthy meals and eating lots, with no need to resort to purees when he refuses what I’ve cooked.
    Thanks so much!

  2. Alexis says:

    Thanks. My almost 5 year old is super picky these days. The only veggies she likes are peas, carrots, cauliflower and maybe broccoli, (She used to eat everything..). She also won’t eat beans except chickpeas, and no greens. :sigh: Dinner is a challenge.

  3. Anjali @ Vegetarian Gastronomy says:

    Great roundup Richa!! I’ll have to try some of these for my kids. And thanks for including some of mine! Will share!

  4. Chelsea says:

    I was so excited to find this post! My 5 year old daughter has just started eating solids and is vegan due to health issues. I wanted to be able to make dinner for her, my son and myself without needing to make two different dishes. So far, everything has been a hit and my 6 year old son has no complaints about his new diet.

    1. Richa says:

      Thats amazing. Thanks

  5. Donna D says:

    Wow! You have outdone yourself here! I weeks of new delicious recipes to try out – and not just for kids! My non-vegan family members are always asking me to bring along a vegan meal for the family – and my mind goes blank. Not anymore! Thank you!

    1. Richa says:


  6. Belinda says:

    What a great compilation of vegan dishes!! I’ll me helping out when my daughter and her family welcome baby number 4, I’m always frustratingly stumped as to what to cook for them! I’ll take all of these along and WOW them with these dishes!

    1. Richa says:

      Congratulations! I am sure she will appreciate all the delicious food. Happy cooking!

  7. Cassie Autumn Tran says:

    What a fantastic list of recipes! While my sisters and I aren’t really considered “kids”, we’d still love these recipes! Besides, I have a whole family of non-vegans who need some carnivore-approved recipes, and all of these will do the trick!

    1. Richa says:

      These are definitely everyone approved!!

  8. Helen says:

    I love this! My little boy has been enjoying your recipes since he was 8 months old — he’s 13 months now and probably your biggest fan. He can be a fussy eater but we have a load of your recipes on regular rotation because they always go down so well (and tend to be packed full of protein and veggies too). Your book and blog have been a lifesaver to this mummy!

    1. Richa says:

      yay! that is so sweet ! 🙂

  9. Beverley Ccumming says:

    Don’t know if there will be any left for the kids…amazing assortment of fantastic ideas…I have your book and just love your posts

      1. Shannon says:

        I have the first book, can we pre-order the second??? Where? Amazing!!!!!!

        1. Richa says:
