Doctors Pulde and Lederman capably build on the philosophy laid out in their previous book (The Forks Over Knives Plan) that “a whole-food, plant-based diet is the optimum choice a person can make.” This installment is a handbook for parents to help them and their families transition to such a diet. Separate chapters cover pregnancy, infancy, and childhood, along with issues that come up once children begin spending more time outside the home, such as handling school lunches. The authors draw on their medical and parental expertise, as well as advice and information that comes from interviews with visitors to their website. This is a manual, not a book that requires reading from front to back. Readers can pick morsels relevant to them and leave the rest. Over half of the book is a cookbook with delicious-sounding recipes from chef Darshana Thacker for both basic foods like muffins and baked ziti and more unusual fare such as Sunflower Seed Paté and Chickpeazella Sticks. Throughout, the writing is accessible and well- documented by footnotes. (Sept.)
