  • I don't measure. He eats beef maybe every 2 weeks and not much. He has chicken some days and some days not. He's not big on meat so when he does have some, it's not very much.

  • I really don't have a clue. I've never measured their food.

    Today, my 2 year old ate:

    2 pancakes (lite butter and lite syrup), 1 banana
    Peanut butter and grape jelly sandwich (2 pieces of bread), a few whole wheat Ritz crackers, deli slice american cheese
    individual bag of animal crackers
    2 fat free hot dogs,bun, handful of tater tots, peas, slice of cheese

    He's also had probably 16oz of milk (2%), water with a couple "glugs" of juice and several drinks of water.

    As for types of meats, we kind of rotate I guess. Chicken, turkey, beef, pork...roasts, sausages, bacon

  • None. No cow milk, either. Doctors don't know anything about nutrition; as a parent it is your responsibility to learn what you child needs. And it is also your responsibility to set a great example by eating a healthy diet; everday you should have at least 8 8oz glasses of water; 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables in at least three different colots; 6-7 servings of whole grains. Plant based calcium is a better quality than animal based:
    Whole grains, beans and lentils have more than enough protein for a growing child. Eating a food with vitamin when you eat dark greens or beans increases the absorbtion rate of iron.
    Enjoy your little one!!
