Living on the Veg: A Kids' Guide to Life Without Meat
Format: Hardcover
Grade Levels: 3; 4; 5; 6; 7;

"If you're thinking of turning vegetarian and living on the veg or have already taken the first step, remember this: You are not alone!"

With kid-friendly language and lots of information, longtime vegetarians Clive Gifford and Jacqueline Meldrum offer kids advice and support in this guide on going vegetarian and eating less meat. Living on the Veg explores key reasons why people go vegetarian - from reducing animal cruelty to improving their health to protecting the environment and others. Various eating styles such as vegetarian, pescatarian, flexitarian, and vegan are explained.

"So you've thought long and hard about it and decided to live life on the veg." What now?

A Q&A section gives kids answers to common questions people might ask them as new vegetarians, while information on maintaining proper nutrition is explained in easily digestible bites. Plenty of tips on living a veggie lifestyle - including breaking the news to parents, adopting a vegetarian diet, eating well, and options for eating out - offer kids advice and support through challenges and slip-ups as they make this change. Also included is a section with 12 simple vegetarian recipes from Jaqueline Meldrum (author of the Tinned Tomatoes blog) that kids can make with parents to help them get started.

Niam! Cooking with Kids: Inspired by the Mamaqtuq Nanook Cooking Club
Format: Hardcover
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; Inuit;
Grade Levels: Kindergarten; 1; 2; 3; 4;

“Niam” is an Inuktitut word that means “yum,” and the recipes in this book are kid-tested for tastiness—a sure sign that they will live up to the name!

From simple smoothies to jerk chicken to pizza from scratch, there is something in this book for all taste buds and skillsets. All the ingredients are readily available in Nunavut communities, and all the recipes can be made with country food, so kids both north and south can learn how to create the perfect palaugo (a delightful hybrid of pogos and palaugaaq, traditional Inuit bannock) or make a mean meatball.

Inspired by the Mamaqtuq Nanook Cooking Club, this cookbook isn’t just about simple, delicious, kid-friendly recipes. Woven in amongst the tacos and the sugar cookies are ways to use cooking to give back to the community, traditional Inuit knowledge about country food, and lists of skills that kids will develop as they work their way through each recipe. With recipes for even the littlest chef, this book offers the most delicious kind of learning. Niam!

Plant, Cook, Eat!: A Children's Cookbook
Grade Levels: 2; 3; 4; 5;

For beginners and green-thumbed foodies, this unusually all-inclusive garden-to-kitchen cookbook is part lesson in gardening and part collection of healthy, delicious, kid-friendly recipes.

With vibrant photo-illustrations and clearly organized sections, discover how to plant seeds in patio containers, window boxes, or on an allotment; harvest fruits and vegetables; determine which plant parts are edible; spot pests in the garden; and use home-grown crops to cook everything from bean and bacon spaghetti to polenta chips to tomato, feta, and basil pizza.

"A horticulturalist (from the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, no less) and a food writer partner to produce a kid-friendly guide to growing and preparing food.

Their collaboration is packed with all the basic information would-be green thumbs need to start a garden. They’ll learn about the importance of soil health and composting, tools and equipment, as well as wildlife friends and foes. After a brief intro to plant anatomy and reproduction, the book walks kids through the tasks necessary throughout the growing cycle, from sowing and planting, watering and weeding, to, finally, harvesting. Whether gardening in the backyard, in containers or window boxes, or in a community-garden allotment, tips and tricks galore demonstrate how easy it is. Kids can then delight in transforming home-grown produce into delicious meals. Step-by-step growing guides to individual vegetables precede recipes. Learn how to grow tomatoes before making tomato, feta, and basil pizza or peas for pea gnocchi. All the recipes are simple, tasty, and definitely not boring! This book shares a tactic valued by parents in the know—kids are typically actively excited to eat the foods they grow and cook themselves, thus cultivating healthy eating habits. Vibrant photographs featuring culturally diverse youngsters, sprightly decorative illustrations, and a well-organized layout make the book easy to digest and enjoyable to read. In the back, suggestions for growing varieties and a plant glossary take away the guesswork.

Part gardening how-to, part healthy cookbook, this effort offers budding young gardeners (and their adults) a comprehensive, hands-on guide to gardening and cooking." —Kirkus Reviews STARRED review

"Thoroughly 'kid friendly' in organization and presentation, Plant, Cook, Eat!: A Children's Cookbook is especially and unreservedly recommended for family, elementary school, and community library collections." —Midwest Book Review
