NatalieBA Posted February 28, 2014 Share Posted February 28, 2014 Well I am doing the Whole 30, my 20 month old son is not but I would like to move him toward a more paleo diet. Then maybe next time he can do the Whole 30 with me. My biggest concern with him is that he does not eat meat or fish and only eats eggs occasionally. We can get him to eat tuna or chicken if it is in Jolof rice and small (hard to notice). If the pieces of protein are too big he spits them out says "chicken!" and stops eating. He doesn't even eat this consistently. Otherwise he sometimes eats black eyed peas, sometimes eats hummus, sometimes eats eggs with tomato sauce, drinks lots of milk, sometimes eats yogurt. And that's about it for protien. So I would love to move to more meat/fish/eggs and get away from legume/rice based protien dishes. I have tried meat loaf muffins, hard boiled eggs. I offer him stuff from my plate all the time. (chicken, salmon, eggs, chicken liver, ribs, etc) I'm just hoping for suggestions. Part is the texture I think he doesn't like, but often he won't even try new things. Like I think he might like the texture of chicken liver better but have not been able to get him to even taste it. Things he does like are fruit, coconut (fresh meat or water, oil, butter), some veggies fried or roasted in coconut oil and paleo muffins or banana bread made using coconut flour (notice a coconut theme?). Maybe there is some way I could do meat with fruit or coconut in some form to get him to give it a try? Any suggestions for picky toddlers?
