There is no other book that approaches vegan parenting like The Smart Parent's Guide to Raising Vegan Kids on the market. Other comparative books focus strictly on vegan cooking and recipes for children, some others focus on vegan pregnancies, but there are few general, holistic vegan parenting guides and how-tos.
The book includes contributors such as Dr. Neal Barnard, bestselling author and one of America's leading voices in health and nutrition; Dr. Tom Campbell, co-author of The China Study and plant-based physician; Robin Fetter, CEO of VegParents Network and The Real Vegan Housewife; Cindy Ford, Silly Little Vegan / Happy Cow Ambassador; J.D. Goldschmidt, vegan actor/model/personal trainer; Amie Hamlin, executive director of the Coalition for Healthy School Food; Claire Lunny-Peters, vegan chef and YouTube personality; Robin Molito-Moore, founder of RaisingVegKids.com & NYC Vegetarian and Vegan Families Meetup; and Allison Rivers Samson, award-winning author of Veganize It! and co-founder of Dairy Detox,/li>
Eric Lindstrom is the author of The Skeptical Vegan (Skyhorse, July 2017). He has raised four children (including two fostered children) on a vegan lifestyle. His blog The Meaty vegan features posts that receive over 10,000 views a day. He has relationships with many leading names in the vegan world and has received very positive blurbs from Steve-O, Matthew Modine, Richard Marx, Victoria Moran, Kristy Turner, and many others.
The growing trend of vegan lifestyles in America creates a demand for a vegan parenting book, especially where none exist. In 2013, there were about one million vegans in the United States, and Google searches for the term “vegan” had doubled since 2004.
