threegirlpileup Posted February 12, 2013 Report Share Posted February 12, 2013 (edited) Hi all, I am looking for suggestions for getting protein and iron into my picky eater. She would prefer to be a vegetarian but will eat some chicken and fish. That helps with the protein but not so much the iron. She does like raw spinach but can only eat so much of that. She is game to try new things in theory, but it is challenging to find new foods that she actually likes--for example she knows that if she's not eating meats it would be good to incorporate legumes into her diet, but she hates the texture. We are pretty healthy eaters and my dd (11) is conscientious about eating well. She happily eats most fruits, quite a few veggies, and cheese. But I'm feeling severely limited by her current food preferences. She seems especially open at the moment to trying some new things, so I'd appreciate any suggestions. Of course, with her dance schedule, we do a lot of eating on the go, so packable options are especially appreciated. Thanks! Edited February 12, 2013 by threegirlpileup Quote Link to comment
