Hi there,
Can anyone recomend some good sources for toddler nutrition and meal planning? I'm especially interested in making sure DS will be eating well when we stop nursing once he's about 2yo (and I'm not seeking a debate on that just now--long story--though I certainly commend anyone who continues to CLW).

He is an enthusiastic eater, and I think we do pretty well at avoiding the bad stuff most of the time, but once he doesn't need the full-fat items anymore, I want to be sure his diet is rich and balanced. Any helpful books? Websites? Recommendations?

BTW, I'm a vegetarian, but DS and DH eat meat occasionally.

Super Baby Food is the ONLY book you need. It gives detailed information on nutrition, preparation, and recipes. I have used this book for years and recommend it for everyone. I've even given it as a gift.

We like Raising Vegetarian Children: A Guide to Good Health and Family Harmony by Joanne Stepaniak. It's got a lot of great information on what types and how much of the different nutrients kids (of all ages) need and where you can find them (obviously, though all vegetarian sources).

The Dr. Sears collection has a book about nutrition that friends of mine have found helpful. Don't remember the name but you should be able to find it rather easily on amazon, etc.
