As a mother of two young boys, I love cooking for my boys and their friends. I particularly like seeing their friends enjoying healthy Vegan foods, they love the color taste and smell of the food. Children eat with their eyes! There is nothing better than seeing my boys and their friends excitedly waiting for the cookies to come out of the oven. Spreading the word about vegan foods is a passion. I share vegan meal plans with other parents, as it’s a good way to get children to improve their intake of vegetables.
