Sunshine09:  Are you looking for recipes for the whole family, or toddler finger food recipes? 

My daughter used to love peanut butter on sliced apples with raisins. Bananas work too

Sunshine09:  I would just stick to some grilled proteins with nice steamed veggies, and a grain.

Have you looked into the dairy substitutes? Daiya has non-dairy and non-soy cheeses, so if a recipe calls for it, you can get that substitute.

Sunshine09:  My LO is also MSPI.  We eat a lot of:

entrees:  rotisserie chicken, broiled salmon with dill, dairy free fish sticks (there’s one brand), chicken soft tacos, sausage (italian, breakfast, all types as long as dairy free), chicken burgers, turkey burgers, butternut squash pasta with browned hamburger or italian sausage.

sides: broccoli, peas, green beans, homemade sweet potato fries, asparagus, potatos in many ways

snacks: fruits of all kinds, dairy free puffs, hummus and pita, Give Peas a Chance, etc.

For breakfast, our LO tends to eat eggs and sausage or oatmeal each morning.  Sometimes I make dairy free pancakes (tons of recipes online).  Lunch is always leftovers from the previous nights’ dinner.  Sometimes I make something “special” like taco soup or dairy free chicken pot pie.

I aim to get 2-4 veggies and 2-4 fruits in LOs diet per day, plus a protein at every meal since she doesn’t get that from milk products.

Check out vegan society and other vegan sites and Google ‘vegan children’ you’ll get tons of non dairy and non soy fully balanced meal ideas.

Any paleo recipe will work for you. I’m soy and dairy free, and paleo works great for me.

Ooh, I also have an mspi baby and I’m still nursing so I’m tagging to follow for ideas for both of us.

ETA: Can I ask what you all do for milk? My LO is 11 months and I want to start to think about weaning from nursing once he’s a year.

BOGB:  We use hemp milk.  Some hemp milks have a stronger taste, so we use a mix of vanilla hemp milk mixed witn unsweetened hemp milk (just half and half). 

 

We chose hemp milk because it’s the closest to regular whole milk in terms of calories and nutrition and our LO had some weight gain issues in her first year–the other milk substitutes tend to be very low calorie in comparison (whole milk has about 150 cals per cup and most of the others have 60 or only 30 cals per cup depending on if sweetened or unsweetened).  Hemp has 120 cals/cup.

 

But for cooking and when I was still BFing, I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk for cereal, pancakes, desserts and unsweetened regular almond milk for savory stuff like mashed potatos.
