Firstly I'm 100% not after any comments on the benefits of eating meat and why it should happen for kids. I've been veggie 20 years and dairy free two years. My DD1 is breastfed and has perfect health and in the 90th percentile for weight and 75 for height. A big chubby bouncing baby. Please only comment if you can remain impartial to my diet choices as don't want a debate. 😊
So my conundrum is, at 5mths she's never had meat in utero or via breast milk and although DH has agreed to dairy free we had previously said let her have meat and choose to omit if she wants.. The thought of her eating meat tho makes me really upset..not sure what to do. We do however eat fish.
I plan to see a dietician in the new year before she starts solids anyways as want to make sure I'm doing the right things.
DH is a very accommodating partner but I want to make sure I don't bully him into anything. Would love to hear from any other mums ( or Dads ) that have had conflicting ideas on diet for kids and how you navigated it peacefully.
Thanks in advance.
