I Have a Hard Time Getting my Child to Eat Meat. What Else Can I Feed Him for Protein?
Protein is very important for children, especially for their growth. There are plenty of options for foods that are high in protein. All foods made from meat, poultry, fish, dry beans or peas, eggs, nuts and seeds are part of the same food group. These choices can be included throughout the day as snacks and during meals.
If your child does have some meat in their diet, the choices should be lean cuts of meat trimmed of visible fat and skinless poultry. Lean cooking preparations such as broiling, grilling, roasting and poaching are also ways to keep meat healthy.
