It’s snack time! My youngest has a pediatrician appointment today for her 1 year checkup. I am remembering from visits with my oldest child that the nurse is going to ask me all about my child’s behavior, sleeping, and eating habits. So I was inspired to take a photo of snack time today! We are having grapes, oranges, whole grain (Ryvita brand) crackers with almond butter. And if you look closely at the baby’s plate you can see she snagged a couples pieces of my tempeh bacon. Did you know that fruit has protein in it? There are almost 2 grams of protein in an orange, and about half a gram in a cup of grapes. The almond butter delivers about 7 grams of protein. But, we know that protein is not really something to worry about on any diet! It is virtually impossible to be deficient in this nutrient if you are not on a starvation diet; that is, if you get enough calories, you get enough protein. This is true in all stages of life, including pregnancy and childhood!
