I'm currently feeding my daughter vegetarian, though we're trying to give her fish too. She mostly chews the fish up and spits it out. I've been vegetarian for almost my whole life and have done some research on protein requirements, but my husband considers what I've found to be meat-free propaganda. He's afraid she won't develop properly because of a lack of specifically meat-based protein. Any nutrition experts out there know? She gets milk, eggs, whole grains, lentils, beans, and plenty of soy protein, is robustly healthy on her growth charts, and is reaching all the appropriate developmental milestones. Advice?
