My munchkin's not much of a meat eater either. She does love edamame, though, as long as it's still in the shell because it's fun to eat. I can usually get her to eat a few bites of most meats by serving with a dipping sauce and/or on a stick. She also loves meatballs and sausages (you can get the healthy, fresh ground kind at Sprouts here, but I think Trader Joe's and Whole foods also has healthier ones). Sausages taste better and are healthier than hot dogs. She also loves sushi, and loves it when I take salmon, spread a bit of cream cheese (vegetable or herb) on top, sprinkle panko on top and bake it, but I'm sure you could skip the cream cheese. Kids seem to love anything breaded. I also get some protein into her with her whole grains. Is it all dairy or just cow-based dairy that's the problem?

Hi everyone! I just joined the team, hoping to find some advice/support here as I was just recently told by doctors that my son may have a dairy intolerance. He was getting sick all the time ( though he is in preschool ) but then he started vomiting. It would only last the day and the next day he would be better. Each time ( happened 3x with the vomiting ) we found he had a glass of milk with his dinner before going to bed, only to wake up the next day throwing up. It has been 2 weeks dairy free or very little and he has not had any episodes. Problem is, he isn't a big meat eater unless it's unhealthy meats such as hamburgers, hot dogs, ect. I cook a lot of fish, scallops, shrimp, chicken and london broil. He likes chicken and london broil but he isn't really into seafood. He got most of his protein through dairy such as his glass of milk ( which we replaced with almond milk that has almost no protein) string cheese, cubed cheese, greek yogurt. I keep a carton full of peeled boiled eggs for him which he loves but I can't feed him nothing but eggs and peanut butter and jelly! He does eat beans but he has to be in the mood. Any idea's out there to get more protein into his snacks and meals without feeding him junk or dairy?
