Vegetarian Toddler

Q: “Our daughter refuses to eat meat and always has. Is vegetarianism unusual in a child this young?”

A: It is not unusual for children to avoid a whole food group for a limited period, although vegetables are usually rejected more often than meat. You can be sure your daughter has all the nutrients she needs with foods other than meat: tofu, leafy green vegetables, beans, cheese, eggs and whole grains.
