Reviews for Vegetarian Food

School Library Journal Reviews 2009 July

Gr 3-5-These titles each contain eight fairly healthy recipes that most children can prepare on their own. Adult supervision is noted when needed. Sandwiches and Vegetarian Food are the better titles. The former includes great after-school snacks that are a snap to prepare, and the latter stresses the need for a balanced diet. Recipes such as "Chunky pasta" will appeal to many readers, not just vegetarians. A few of the recipes in Cookies are bland and boring, such as the "Fruity oat bars" and the "Victoria layer cake." Full-color procedural photographs complement each recipe, but there is no nutrition information.-Colleen D. Bocka, Nathaniel Rochester Community School, Rochester, NY
