So I have been vegetarian for a bit and am newly vegan. I am also transitioning my family over to a vegan diet. Dh is welcome to have meat/dairy if he would like but I won't cook with it it. (he is very open to veganism though) I did buy him some organic chicken thighs the other day but had a hard time putting them in the cart. Anyway... I digress.
So I have a 12 mo old and a 4.5 year old and I want to make sure they are getting all their nutritional needs met. I plan on child-led weaning with the baby so I suspect that he will still be nursing for awhile. Right now he nurses 3-4 x a day and all night long. He also is a decent eater when it comes to table foods. Ds1 is a bit pickier. I am trying to switch him off of dairy milk but he does not really like soy. He likes vanilla almond but I would prefer that it have more protien. I also have a tough time packing his lunch for preschool (2x weekly) he does not like pb and j, He will eat a tofurky sandwich w/ ketchup and mustard. He will eat a hardboiled egg, yogurt, cheese, all things I am trying to eliminate. Lunch at home is easier because I can cook/heat up his food and serve it warm like he prefers.
So what are good milk options for both to drink? Snacks, lunches?
Thanks in advance, Jess :)
