My son Brenden has never been a big meat eater... He is more of a veggie kind of guy. I do NOT force him to eat meat... just to clarify... I think his aversion to it is a texture thing relating to his neuroligical challanges. Its not a problem no matter. My only concern is that he would rather live off PB&J and I don't think thats healthy. So I am looking for some things that I can cook for him that will give him more variation in his diet.
He will eat processed meats but he only gets that stuff at school as I don't buy those things for at home. Well maybe once a month I will make home made pizza. But anywho... I am looking for some ideas as to where he can get the protein he needs. I know beans are good sources of protein but he doesn't really care for them either. Lentils he will eat and sometimes I make this 15 bean soup that he seems to like. I just need some ideas... I don't think this is a phase and I want to make sure he is getting enough variety. We are pretty good about fresh veggies... we have salad a lot and I am lucky that my kids will eat any kind of veggie around. Brocoli, cabbage, spinach.. they are all really good about it. I just worry he isn't getting enough protein.
Thanks in advance!
PS... He just started refusing to eat meat about a month or so ago.. Though like I said before he was never overly fond of it. But he would eat chicken... now he isn't eating that either. So he will have veggies and rice with a snack of maybe carrots and PB. He is maintaining his weight. I don't think the meds help much with his appetite... but we work around it best as we can.
