Hi All! I'm cross posting this in the Allergy forum because I'm at a loss. DD is almost 12 months old and getting to a stage where breastmilk is just not satisfying her hunger well enough. At the same time, we have a couple of challenges to getting her tank filled during the day. 1) she's picky. 2) she is allergic to eggs, verified by a blood test 3) we suspect intolerances (not allergies, but severe gas/GI issues) to corn, starches like rice/potatoes, oats, and coconut. She doesn't *seem* to have issues with dairy, but will not eat it. I've not yet tried goats milk but am hoping to find a good source of raw goats milk so I can make kefir. She also doesn't *seem* to have wheat issues.

 

ETA: she has severe issues with legumes, so peanuts, beans, etc. are out! We don't think she has a tree nut allergy but are waiting until she is older to introduce them.

 

So, what do I make for toddler meals?! I want to get a LOT of protein into her because she seems to do best sleep and gas wise when she gets more protein than carbs. Ideas? Please and thank you!
