Recent discussion topics include:
One parent posted: Does anyone else find that their refrigerator doesnt have enough space for produce? These things are clearly designed for meat and cheese and lots of boxes and bottles. I need more drawer space! Has anyone found a DIY hack to keep their produce fresh in the fridge? Help a mama out! Several group members shared suggestions on how they deal with this issue.
A grandparent posted: Any suggestions for books (or even websites) that explain how to structure meals for infants and toddlers? Im not looking for recipes, but rather information on making sure that my grandbabies get the nutrients they need.
VRG shared with the group: The US Department of Agricultures Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) recently announced that it will recognize soy-based tempeh as a meat/meat alternative that can be served in the Child Nutrition Programs such as the National School Lunch Program a.k.a. school lunches.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/VRGparentsandkids/ is intended to be a group that offers support for
families raising children on vegan diets and for vegan kids. We envision it as
a place to get advice about a wide-variety of topics: pregnancy, birthday
parties, school lunches, Halloween, non-leather apparel, cruelty-free products,
summer camps, and more. Please use it as a place to share your wisdom, seek
advice, or just find a sympathetic ear. The goal is to offer support.
Consequently, any profane, defamatory, offensive, or violent language will be removed. Feel free to disagree, but do so respectfully. Hateful or discriminatory comments regarding race, ethnicity, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation, or political beliefs will not be tolerated. We expect that posts should relate to vegan diets and lifestyles. The Vegetarian Resource Group reserves the right to monitor all content and ban any user who posts in violation of the above rules, any law or regulation, SPAM, or anything otherwise off topic.
Please share this information with any veggie families that you know! Thanks.
