My daughter does not eat meat. When she was younger, like a year old.. she would eat chicken nuggets, fish sticks, and pepperoni. Nothing else.. no other meat. And when we would tell her she had to eat her dinner, she would gag, or sit there and chew her food for a half hour at a time. She refuses to eat any kind of meat, and she wont eat chicken nuggets anymore, or fish sticks.. and she will no longer eat pepperoni, unless she doesn't know it's there (like if it's tiny pieces of pepperoni under the cheese on a pizza. She has never liked meat. And it's becoming something I worry about. I thought maybe it was a texture thing.. but she wont eat meat in any form. And she doesn't eat vegatables either.. or rice.. really all I can get her to eat is pasta, pizza, mac and cheese, and grilled cheese. She wont eat eggs.. Her father thinks that if we continue to put it in front of her, eventually she will eat it.. but she is 5 years old.. and this has been an on going issue since she was an infant.. I could barely get her to eat the pureed baby food meats that come in a jar. I have talked to her doctor about this, and she basically said that as well.. just keep trying her with it.. and eventually she will eat it. But she wont. She will ASK to go to bed instead of eating dinner because she doesn't like the meat we are having. She would rather starve then eat meat. So I'm going to bring it up to her doctor at her next visit.. but do you guys know if they can like "deem" her vegetarian, so her father and I can understand and accept this is more than just a stubborn child who doesn't want to eat what we're having for dinner? Because I'm not sure if she just doesn't like what we're eating.. or if she just strictly wont eat meat. What do you guys think?
