If not a toddler, but an older child, then you could look up some vegetarian kid-friendly recipes on the internet to find some other ways to get protein into him. While dairy is a good source of protein, it is not the best choice, so you will want to offer him some alternatives (beans, nuts, eggs, etc.) until he decides meats are okay again. You can even use bean flours to bake with, which would also add protein to his diet. Another choice might be to try some of the vegan "meat" substitutes from the grocery store, like "chicken" nuggets or TVP crumbles for chili & sauces. Maybe the texture of the substitutes would be more to your son's liking? Also, since he will eat cereal, some gluten-free cereals are made w/bean flours, so high protein and a good alternative to regular cereals for him. These can be found in some grocery stores and also health food stores.
