My Miss-one-year-old is a very fussy eater. To make it more tricky, she can’t have eggs, dairy or nuts. Do you have some ideas on what I can feed her for meals?

Good idea is to get vegitarian cook b ook or ideas of the net. Honestly so many varieties, with out all the foods your little one is unable to eat. Hope this is helpfull been around lots of kids in my time and still am



  • No eggs, dairy or nuts can be quite hard, but there are many foods you can substitute with. My youngest is dairy free and we use lots of coconut yoghurt and coconut milk. Instead of cheese I buy a vegan cheese by Woolworths (red leicester). Instead of eggs, you can use flax or chia eggs, which is very protein rich too. Instead of nuts, we use lots of roasted broadbeans and roast chickpeas and pumpkin- and sunflower seeds are also a good alternative for nuts.
    At the age of one I did lots of finger foods and prepared them in an ice cube tray, so they could just grab when they were up for it.
