My daughter loves fruits and veggies but I cannot get her to eat meat. I have tried everything, even tricking her but I have had no luck. The only meat she will eat is pattys from Mc Donalds burgers. This is not healthy...any suggestions?Answer Question

If I could be a vegetarian without breaking down and eating meat, I would! I can only hope my children will do the same. The meats sold in our grocery stores are better than McDonald's but aren't really super healthy to be honest with you either. The protein she is missing can be obtained by eating legumes (peas, certain nuts, anything that grows in a "pod" etc.). She doesn't NEED meat. She probably has an enviably healthy palate. Good for her! :-)

Not eating meat isn't a real big deal. Add the normal substitutes to meals---beans etc.... Your health care provider will have lots of suggestions for you. And remember, please do not make a big deal out of it with your little one. It will turn into a power struggle. Your meal dishes will always be available if your daughter chooses to give it a go.
