Your favorite meals kids love

Hi everyone. My children and I are mostly vegetarian (I say "mostly" because my mom insists on feeding them meat when they're over her house. She thinks I'm harming them by not giving them any. Nothing I say helps.) I'm making the transition to raw vegan (been trying to do this for a while. I'm just so addicted to cooked foods!). I would like the kids to eventually be vegan too, though they don't have to be raw if they don't want to.

Mostly they're eating the same thing they were eating when we were an omni family with the exception of meat. I would like to make their diet more vegan if possible. Whole foods definitely a plus.

What are some of your favorite meals for kids? My children love peas, corn, carrots, celery, cucumber, and green beans. My daughter loves to try new things (she's 4) and she sometimes will eat the raw dishes I make. She also loves spinach, collard greens, and kale when they're in a salad. Sometimes she'll also eat yellow squash. My son won't touch most of the raw dishes though he is starting to like more veggies in his diet (he's 8). He seems addicted to bread and sugary foods and I worry about canidida with him. Sometimes they won't eat the veggies but usually they will. They also love pasta but I'm trying to move towards more whole foods, as I said. They both love nearly every type of fruit I've brought into the house (though neither is a big fan of kiwi or blackberries).

They eat fruits and veggies for snacks. This was in place even when we were omni.

This has been hard because neither really likes change much. That's why I haven't change their diet much, with the exception of eliminating meat. I'm looking to introducing one new meal a week to them and start from there.
