Hi Alex, welcome to the forum, what do you enjoy eating?
It's not what you do occasionally that makes a difference, it's that which you do everyday that brings progress.

Personally, I'm not into things that are substitutes. I find they work great for my kids who see other kids eating eggs and bacon and want that. But me, I like recipes that don't predent to be anything. Vegan food can be GREAT on it's own in my opinion, we don't need fake meat! I want to make a website becuase although I don't appreicate them myself, my kids love substitues and as a mom it's just easier ;) I've been asking for people to donate their favorite children's recipes. I have some good ones for eggs using chickpea soy. How about you Silver?

Hello & Welcome Alex! It is nice to see another vegan parent join. What part/s of the world do y'all call home? :)

My kids never had envy of other people's food, but they do like burger and chips!

I'm not one for substitutes either, but there' something intrinsically nice about the shape of a sausage or a burger. It's probably cultural, but still...

I've avoided the substitute path almost entirely, especially fake cheese. (Just why?) but have kept our food 'normal'.

We make a whole range of cakes and flapjacks that go down really well. Especially the chocolate, of course.
As to savouries, battered veg, bhaji, and noodles seem to be really popular with the kids.
Oh, and pies and pasties. Chestnut and mushroom for pie, carrot,cashew and marmite for pasty.
Another favorite is nut roast and veg with gravy, marmite, soy sauce, sauted onion and potato/veg water thickened with cornflour makes the very best gravy.
Add in simple meals like pasta and veg, beans on toast and jacket spuds with houmous and salad, you get a good mix of meals that they've always eaten. We have a few other recipes that don't go down so well, mainly involving sweet potato for some reason...
We make our own bread too, it's a great way of getting seeds and nuts into them without having them notice :)
Goes down well with soups too.

My experience has been that in the long run, having the 'eat what's provided or eat nothing' rule (within reason of course) has panned out well long term, I've two lifelong vegan kids aged 14 and 16 on which to base that on.
