My daughter eats almost everything with no fuss at all, but she will not eat any meats, jarred or not.

have you tried the shaved meats you can get from the deli?

my nearly 2yo son will only eat the shaved meat for the deli coz its thin and easy to chew

My kids didn't eat meat for the longest time, as long as they get the essential protein from other foods its fine! My seven year old has PDD-NOS (autism spectrum disorder) and can't stand the textures of many foods his doc says as long as he is getting his nutrients let him eat what he prefers!

I'm vegetarian. And to each her own. If my son decides to eat meat in the coming year, he may. If he wants to eat fruits, grains, and veggies and never tries meat....that's perfectly healthy and fine with me!



If you are worried about protiens try beans and rice...if you're worried about iron include dark green veggies - brocolli and leafy greens...There are other options than meat.

She will eat almost anything but meat, her fav is sweet potatoes so i have tried adding meats in, and that wont work either.

i could only get my son to eat chicken and turkey for the longest time, have you tried different kinds? He would never touch the grainer meats like ham and hamburg

Quoting cyndi:

Will she eat like veggies and pototes? If so mixed it up in that or with noodles and tell her thats its veggies.


That never worked with my kids, they new the difference. they're a bunch of stinkers :)

my son is 3 and he still goes through phases on eating and not eating meat. this week he'll only eat cereal and pizza. gotta love it. as long as she's eating don't worry about it to much, she looks fine and healthy. She also my not like the texture of it. when she gets older and gets more teeth, she'll be fine.
