Vegan Lunch Box Wins VegWebby!

Hey, VegNews magazine voted Vegan Lunch Box "Best Family Blog" in its first annual VegWebby Awards:
"Jennifer McCann's Vegan Lunch Box defies the deprived-vegan-child stereotype. Enthused web prowlers have been brewing up buzz about this blog since its inception in 2005. The premise? McCann chronicles and photographs her son Shmoo's daily lunchbox gems. With her aloo samosas, empanadas and phyllo bundles, she could well be raising the best-fed kid on the planet."
Hee hee. As a VegNews lover from waaay back (I take my VegNews canvas bag with me whenever I go shopping!), I am so surprised and delighted by this honor. Thanks so much, VegNews -- your magazine is the BEST!

A very interesting site! I recently attended a wedding where all of the food, including the wedding cake, was vegan.

Wow, I haven't read your site in a while, just a few months I think, and a lot has happened. Congratulations on the award, and you're writing a book, too? It's no surprise, as the site is wonderful, and your dedication to the vegan lifestyle, to good health, and your son are all admirable and a great example and resource for others.

I am vegetarian and have tried veganism as well, it isn't easy. I really admire you for making healthy eating and cooking at home a priority and for exposing others to new ideas and recipes.

And besides, your site is fun to read AND to look at--how could one not love the cute dividers in the lunchbox, each one filled with its own homemade course of yummy food, and the thermoses full of soup! Lucky schmoo. And Congrats to you on all of it!
