I feel that we eat A LOT of chicken and so am looking for inspiration for healthy meals which have pork, beef or fish in them and which will be enjoyed by the whole family, including a fussy toddler and weaning baby! Help please!!

Why not have a look on the BBC Good Food website - lots of ideas there

My DC loved fish cakes at that age. Fish cakes, tuna pasta bake and fish pie are great for weaning. I think I used the Annabel Karmel fish pie recipe.
I batch cook chilli con carne, spaghetti bolognese, lasagne, enchiladas, moussaka, and shepherd's pie, which are all good for weaning.
I do a fair few recipes with bacon or ham, such as:
Risotto realfood.tesco.com/recipes/brocolli-and-ham-risotto.html
Fried rice www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/6350/fastfix-fried-rice
Frittata recipes.sainsburys.co.uk/recipes/main-courses/spinach-and-bacon-frittata
Sometimes I use chorizo in a Moroccan stew or with pasta www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/3074682/penne-with-chorizo-and-broccoli
Another couple of family favourites:
Toad in the hole realfood.tesco.com/recipes/lighter-toad-in-the-hole.html
Smokey sausage casserole www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/pork-recipes/jools-sausage-smoky-bean-casserole/

Nicois salad, make using tuna steaks (frozen are good value for money).
Another favourite is cod marinated in a mix of yoghurt and curry powder and then placed on a baking sheet, topped with mango chutney and baked.
Joint of gammon with pineapple and chilli salsa.

How about adding some veggie meals to your repertoire
