when weaning, should at least 1 meal a day be meat based? I have run out of food for her so today is a batch cooking day! I am doing broccoli and cauli in a cheese sauce and salmon mashed with carrot and tomato. so for next few weeks she will be getting Breakfast - porridge lunch - broccoli &cauli in a cheese sauce + fromage frais dinner - salmon & veggies + fruit pot in between she will get some cheese sticks, strawberries, skips etc etc. Just wee things to play with and feed herself. BUT, in order to make my batch cooking go further could I for instance give her cooked apples&pears with cinnamon for lunch and broccoli for dinner? that would mean a day with no protein? if I can get her eating eggs she will get one of them a couple of times a week for lunch with a fruit pot. she is taking around 23oz of milk a day, so does it really matter what she eats before 1 year old?
