How do you find vegetarian baby meals?? I only see "chicken and peas" and stuff like that. I don't think just giving strained peas and fruits is enough! What baby foods can give protein and things?

Check out the book Super Baby Foods. Also, how old is your baby? Oh wait, looks like you are pregnant still! Egg yolks and yogurts are good around 9mo or so. It is best to wait though. If you can wait until 6mo for solids, IE fruits and veggies that is best, to prevent allergies. Also, my doctor told me that rice cereal is too complex for babies, because their bodies do not have the proper food enzymes to digest it. She recommends at 6 mo fruit and simple veggies. I can post more later if you want, I have company right now!

I made my own baby food. But honestly they shouldn't really have protein type food until the are about old enough to chew small bits, so there isn't really much to worry about. We didn't give our lil one any "meat" type products until she was a year old. Except egg yokes and yogurt like dingledine mentioned.

I have been making my own baby food for when Clara is ready to eat solids, and will use tofu and lentils for her protein.
