My baby boy is 3 years old.He is presently 19 kg of weight. He likes eating NV and bananas.At times he eats 4 bananas per day.In breakfast he would like to have any thing with ketchup or sauce only.He likes to have lunch and dinner with non-vegetarian and hardly eats vegetable curries.He drinks milk for 2-3 times a day.What would be the correct diet for him?Please do help as I have restriction on food from my in-laws on eating bananas and not giving NV.NV refers to non vegetarian(fish, prawns,chicken and mutton)

Does NV mean meat?

In Canada we have the Canada food guide. Basically the idea is that for a child they should have two servings of milk or dairy, 3-5 servings of fruit or vegetables, two servings of meat or alternatives, and 2-4 servings of grains. Our Health Unit also suggests that for toddlers and preschoolers that instead of thinking about daily servings you might want to collapse it over a week. So one day they may eat hardly any meat/protein but may have more servings on another day. Our health unit also suggest that when handling picky eaters you pick the types of foods, providing healthy alternatives, while your child chooses how much they will eat. The idea is that you don't force them to eat more because you think it is what they need instead of allowing them to read their body cues.

As far as food restrictions if there are foods you don't want your child to eat for various reasons the easiest thing is to not have them available.
