So while I'm not thinking we are going to go 100% vegan, I am really wanting to cut a LOT of the meat/dairy , etc out of our diets...at least limit it to only a couple meals per week. My biggest questions involve protein and calcium and B12 for children. I have a 1 year old that I am still breastfeeding but will be beginning the weaning stages in a month or two so that I am done with breastfeeding within about 6 months ....allowing me at least 2 months before the next baby is due.
We do not use artificial ingredients. So in looking for foods my baby should be getting, I'm wondering what will be his protein, fat, and calcium foods if we don't do dairy ( he can't do cows milk right now anyway....excema issues) and I don't want to give him a store bought fortified beverage as they are full of artificial additives. So I'm wondering what you do? Do they really get enough at that age from greens and beans, etc.??? And do you take B12 supplements if you don't eat meat?
