I started giving Athena meats back when her dr suggested we ads it because she was supposedly too thin according to the chart. She was doing fine for the longest time as long as they were mixed with fruits or veggies, but now she refuses to eat them...except maybe the apples and chicken. She is in love with yogurt though...so I was wondering if I could just cut the meats out altogether or if she really needs them and if giving her more yogurt would be ok or if it would be too much? I usually give her 1 yogurt a day but I know Eric gives her 2 or 3.

It could just be a stage. Sophia, my almost 2 year old, has gone through weeks where she won't eat any meat, but then she'll be back to normal the next week. And I think yogurt is fine, Hannah eats it quite regularly

I wouldn't stop offering a food because then she might develop a preference not to eat something. However, I don't think its a big deal. She can get protein and iron from other sources! Greek yogurt is a great source of protein.

Have you tried avocado? Tons of fat but super healthy fat! DD will eat a 1/2 avocado a day if I let her. Also fish - good fat and protein. She chowed on swordfish and baked potato tonight!

My docs always saying every visit that variety is key, so I would try to give at least less yogurt and more of something else. But I know on reality that doesn't always work at this age.

And 20ghanover, i do remember him saying no shark or swordfish...but I don't know why. Did she do okay with it? We don't have either usually but I'd like the option!

It's becuase of the mercury content in large fish. I am definitely aware of that issue and wouldn't give it to her regularly (we usually try to do flounder or something else low mercury instead) but once in a while isn't the worst.

I would try mixing them with other foods until you find a combination that she likes. Pippa doesn't like to eat from a spoon, but if she sees me eating something, she will eat the same thing. I just put it in front of her, and she picks it up with her fingers. I'm not sure why it makes a difference. We use thinly cut meats from Whole Foods, and she eats those with no issues. I have even partially chewed steak for her. (Gross, I know, but it works.)
