For the past few weeks, my 11-month-old has been on this kick where anything she doesn't want to eat, she drops on the floor with a flourish. So we're getting a good idea of her dietary moods! :) Anyway, lately her staple favorites - sweet potatoes, green beans, peas, carrots, broccoli, and fruits - have ALL been hitting the floor, and she's eating meat as fast as I can feed it to her. The other night she ate almost an entire chicken breast, and tonight she ate an adult-sized portion of roast!
Her meals lately have been about 80% meat - or, if I don't offer meat or eggs, she eats very little at all. I'm worried about her limited diet, and don't want to get into bad habits. Obviously we're not vegetarians, but I do believe a plant-based diet is healthier, and I'd like to see her going to town on whole grains and veggies. She's always loved veggies - in fact, she's always been a great non-picky eater. So what's up here? Is this meat craving a sign of some sort of deficiency?
