My 2 1/2 year old has so far been pretty much vegetarian. This is HIS choice--dh and I eat meat (mostly chicken & fish), and offer it to him whenever we're eating it, but so far he won't even taste it. I haven't been too worried about it, because he was still nursing quite a bit, but now he only nurses once or twice a day and I'm wondering If I should try to make any changes to his diet. I have no problem with him continuing to be vegetarian, but I want to make sure he's getting enough protein, vitamins, etc. His diet is pretty limited right now:
fruit--almost any kind
veggies--carrots, white potatoes, garbanzo beans (that's it--I'm not kidding)
carbs--pasta, bread, crackers (I try to give him mostly whole grain stuff)
He will occaisionally eat eggs, and I sometimes give him rice milk or orange juice to drink. What do you guys think? Any suggestions for other foods I can try?
