Please don't force meat on your child (by grinding it and mixing it with other stuff) if they naturally don't want it in the plain version. Kids naturally know how much they want to eat and what.

I'm pretty much a vegetarian and just don't eat or like meat anymore. I do eat fish - did you try that? Maybe nicely cooked salmon will be tastier.

Iron may be a bit of an issue, but not if the child is eating a variety of veggies and foods. The big thing that you should be more concerned about is B-12 which is mostly found in meats. All vegetarians absolutely must find a way to get B-12 into their diets. It can be found in other things on a minimal scale, but if you give your child a vitamin supplement that includes B-12 they should be ok.

Think it would be great if the whole family could eat the same meals. At 18 months he might not know what he really likes yet. This will be for the rest of his life just not now if we do not help him. Try making foods different ways and let him see how you all are enjoying it. He might be curious enough to want to try it. Never seen a baby yet that didn't like meatballs. If all else fails at least you tried before giving in to his tastebuds. Sueanne
