Vegetarian Toddler

Whether your child refuses to eat meat, or your family abstains from meat for other reasons, you may have questions about whether your toddler is getting the nutrition she needs.

If she is refusing to eat meat, but you’d like her to consume it, continue offering it until the phase passes. However, if your family is vegetarian, your best bet is to offer a variety of foods.

You can be sure your toddler has all the nutrients she needs with foods other than meat, including tofu, leafy green vegetables, beans, cheese, eggs and whole grains.
