How To Add Protein To A Restrictive Diet?

6 posts in this topic

DD will be tested this Thursday, but for now I'm getting concerned about variety in her diet. She's almost 1 and I feel I should be adding protein to her diet. However she has reacted to both chicken and beef. With fish, eggs and peanuts being high allergens I'm afraid to even try introducing them this young. Any ideas on how to get protein in her?

I know that Boost has a "High Protein" version that comes in chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. They are also gluten free. I don't know if they are okay though for a one year old. Maybe check with the pediatrician to see if you can maybe add a bit of it to smoothies, or add it to some milk to dilute it......

Good Luck!

some dairy if she can have it, and since she's 1, some eggs, some nuts (almonds are good), some soy, and some protein powders. mix it up and don't rely on any one thing in a day. (rice and hemp protein powders are available - I use both in smoothies.)

Since she's not quite 1, the bulk of her nutrition (including protein) should still be coming from breastmilk or formula, so I wouldn't worry about having to get high protein solids into her...eating foods is still a learning process at this point. Milk and cheeses should be added after the age of one. If you are worried about allergies, then hold off on egg and fish until after one year (note that the MMR shot has egg in it. If you are choosing to innoculate, you may want to try egg before that shot...or put the shot off until later.) Peanuts, tree nuts, chocolate and seeds should not be introduced until after 2yo...or ideally after 3yo for peanuts & tree nuts.

Oops, I forgot to mention is also allergic to dairy so she's not going to get protein from milk or cheese. I appreciate all the suggestions so far! I'm hoping she comes up negative to eggs so we can go that route. She's never had anything with egg in it so I don't know if she'd react. It's not one I'm willing to try, of course, until after her allergy testing.

I'm probably just borrowing trouble since we'll know more later this week, but I can't help but worry and try to find ways to help her.
