So just found out my four yr old is IgG sensitive to dairy, soy, egg, sesame, cashew, pistachio and ginger. We are eliminating all of these for a bit. I am having trouble w/ lunches. She is generally a good eater, lots of fruits, veggies, whole grains. I need more ideas to incorporate fat into her diet. She was a big cheese, yogurt, hummus (tahini) eater and now cannot have those.
So here is what she will eat....loving turkey sandwiches right now (not my favorite, but I buy Applegate Farms turkey), we are trying the Daiya (sp) cheese for homemade pizza- but it is not going well. I tried white bean hummus (homemade, beans, almond butter, lemon, garlic) today and she refused. I can get her to eat nuts, seeds, avocado...but she gets sick of things quickly so I need more stuff to rotate in so I am not asking her to eat avo every single day! She is OK w/ coconut milk yogurt- but again not her fav. She is in a sandwich mood- but what else can I do. She will eat chicken and fish but I do those 1x per week for dinner so trying to not do 'meat' at lunchtime. We also do alot of pasta w/ veggies/beans and soups w/ the same.
I also have a two year old w/ gastro disorder and have to be very cognicent of adding lots of fiber to his diet..so TRYING to feed them the same things if possible at lunch.
Ideas??? Quick, easy and kid friendly???
