My 8m old dd has food allergies. She is allergic to dairy, soy, wheat, peas, eggs, and peanuts. Her allergist has put her off all nuts. And she is underweight,14 lbs and 27". She is a healthy baby, and oin everyhing a 8 m old does. She was 7lb at birth and full term.
The thing is we are vegetarians. Sometimes I just don't know how to include fat and protein in her diet.
She eats solids 3 times a day.rice cereal in the morning, mashed white rice with lentils and vegetables for lunch and dinner. (I'm from India and we are rice and lentil eaters).
Since she is allergic to peanuts and peas her allergist said she could be allergic to all legumes which includes lentils. But the possibility is very tiny. So he said its ok for me to continue giving her lentils till we test her next week.
I'm worried big now. If not for lentils, where is the protein for her?? Wat do u ladies suggest?
