How much, how often?
Provide around 2 smaller serves per day of these foods, or combine smaller serves to eat at once.
Vegetarian eating tip
Non-meat options such as legumes and lentils provide many of the same nutrients as meat, poultry, fish and eggs. Legumes are good to eat with Vitamin C rich foods, for better iron absorption (e.g. legumes and tomatoes).
Food preparation tip
Larger beans like red kidney and lima beans should be cooked until softened for young toddlers.
