DD is 10 months and has protein (meat, fish, beans, lentils or egg) once a day at lunch time.

What types of protein do your LOs eat, and how many times a day at what age?

I have been wondering if I should include some protein at tea time too.

At 10 months my ds1 had protein at both lunch and tea. Tbh protein is his preferred food group and he will always eat it over the carbs. Protein sustains hunger and is much 'healthier' than having a mainly carb diet. It is essential for growth and ensures there is no iron deficiency. Sounds like you are doing great. Well done.

My lo is nearly 8 months and I need to start looking at a balanced diet, have been focused on her trying new tastes etc rather than the actual balance throughout the day but she still gets main nutrition from milk.

At the moment she gets protein from milk in her cereals, cream cheese and meat mostly - will have to look into this properly very soon I think! Has a good variety of veg and fruit too so generally healthy with a few non-healthy tastes thrown in! x
