what about soy allergy?
suspect the orange juice and the fortified soy milk as sources of too much sugar. juice is so much sweeter than fruit.
i just buy it for summer popsicles as special treats and do fruit and water the rest of the time.
an asian soy diet is very different from an american one. an american soy diet is very sweet.
sweet soy milk, soy yogurt, soy everything that we used to eat dairy and meat.
a healthy asian diet is oriented more around vegetables with broths that are salty--- soy or chicken or beef.
i am most itchy when i eat too much sugar, especially milk and sugar, like cereal and ice cream.
high quality, local yogurt is a great way to get cultured as well as get minerals and protein. are you vegan?
can you make raw vegetable a part of every meal? can you have all lthe colors every day, or at least every week?
this will create a healthy intestine and provide detoxifying fiber.
serve the protein when the veggies are eaten, serve the complex carbohydrate when the veggies and the protein are eaten. if you serve them together, they will fill up on it and leave the vegetables for last when they are full. it's amazing how well a hungry child will eat vegetables.
my 3 year old nurses quite a bit, especially in the early morning, and still does not drink other milk. i try all day to get him to drink water, but he's just starting to be a little willing. he has very little soy because i aam allergic. i assume that he may be sensitive to it.
keep observing and testing for problem foods. try nursing first before offering food to increase that perfectly digestable breastmilk in the child's diet. you'll have to drink more water, too.
let us know~
