30 Bananas a Day!

I am full time mister mom and doing my best at feeding my kids tons of raw fruit. We are a vegan family eating mostly raw. I am a little more gung ho about being 100% lfrv than my wife although she is totally down with the idea and is doing the best she can...we'll get there some day. I got some questions about the kids (2 and 3 1/2 year old):

 

how many calories do they need?

 

what kind of meals are your kids eating?

 

Are they eating greens and how?

 

Any bits of advice will help.

I'd like to know this to. Is Nutridiary only useful for adults?

HH,

Smoothies! 

Many kids love milkshakes, slushies, and or smoothies. 

I have also gone lfrv, but my family assumes it is just another fad weight loss plan, and are not ready to follow me 100%. We have made some improvements like banana breakfasts, drinking orange juice instead of milk, but that is another story.  

DR has said one time that "You have to use society to change society."  We have a juice and smoothie chain here in the US called Robeks.  Some of their smoothies are vegan although they probably do have chemicals.  We went to Robeks, got smoothies, then everyone was passing around the smoothies and trying the different tastes.  It was a hit! Then the shocker!  Hey, we can do that at home!

Now, the after school snack are smoothies, smoothie experiments, and kids learning how to do it themselves!

 

Smoothies are a way to sneak in extra calories if needed, and maybe those fruits n veggies they might not necessarily like. 

 

Eating Greens:  I hope someone else chimes in on this one too. Any V=8 smoothie recipes?

 

Regarding Calories:

I remember DR in one of his posts said that kids need slightly less than us.  If you eat 3,000 cals, they might need 2500-3000.  Keep in mind that kids are growing and have a definite need for the vitamin and mineral building blocks for healthy tissues. 

If we are completely honest with ourselves, most of our kids are more athletic and active than us and running around the house in circles counts.  

You might want to just observe your kids.  Let them eat their fill, and write down what they eat over a period of time, then you  have some idea of the needs of your individual kids. Kids, no matter what they eat, tend to be self regulating.  It is parents who many times force them to overeat because kids in 3rd world countries are starving. 

When you get some good ideas, maybe you can repost this or blog about it for the rest of us!

In Peace, PK

 

My son is one year old and I seriously doubt that he'd need 2500-3000 calories a day. He' super active, curious and all over the place *sigh*.
that seems high to me as well. I couldn't imagine my kids eating 30 BaD.
Thanks PK, we love the smoothies here too!
My kids are all vegan but they eat raw for breakfast and lunch. They pretty much eat their fill of fruits for those two meals. The best way for me to get greens in them, without the oily disgusting salad dressing, are smoothies. They love them. Dinner and after school snacks are cooked vegan.
that's generally what our days look like too. how many fruit calories would you say your kids eat?
