Are high protein meats ok for toddler?

Hi not sure which section to put this in but is it ok to give a toddler high protein food that's low in fat? It's good quality meat - chicken, turkey, sausage etc - and I probably sound stupid but can you give them too much protein? I also have high protein cereals.

I might have missed something in your OP (all meat is high protein) but kids need protein for growth - so chicken, beef, pork etc is good in a kid's diet.

Yep meat is totally fine

Toddlers need a balanced diet, so a good mix of protein, complex carbs, dairy, fruit veg etc.

They need protein, but a "high protein" (low carb) diet wouldn't be suitable IMO as not balanced enough.
