Hi Ovivijay, As none of our family members consume Non Veg food, I asked my neighbours and as per them they have been giving chicken/mutton since their son was 11 months old and fish/prawns after 18 months. It seems they don't have any special recipes ; they used to give their son well-cooked pieces from the gravy (esp liver as thats really rich in iron) along with his usual rice/dal/rasam; after a while their son could also eat fried stuff (like lollipops) and kababs and now eats everything.

But please consult your doctor before giving non-veg food of any kind to your child. all the best. thank you!

Hi Ovivijay ,
Any nonveg that you cook for yourself can be given ....make it bitesize pieces.... or mince it slightly...

also can use chicken or mutton mince ....cook it the usual way but add peas to your normal prep this way kid eats both veg and nonveg....
Egg:
boiled,scrambled ,omlettes or scramble prepared with vegetables i.e cauliflower or cabbage

Chicken- mince with peas , Soups (indian way or chicken with sweetcorn) etc... i always add some veg to any nonveg gravy i cook ...radish,turnip, potatoes,peas , spinach,carrot, beans, drumstick etc.... also i prepare gravies with coconut and cashews ... they contain essential oils and amino acids that are good for brain so even if u avoid this for adults always include it for your child in their food......

I don't cook much mutton but you can use lamb mince to make indian version spaghetti bolognese .....

Give the kid loads of fish ...... Simply bake with some salt ,light sprinkling of salt and lemonjuice ...... You can bake in a sheet enpapillote with herbs too ......

Another way is get fish fillets and smear any shop bought tomato based pasta sauce ...bake covered..... simple and tasty way to feed fish ..... This works well with chicken too .... Add a bit of boiled pasta and some steamed veg making it a wholesome meal that can be eaten by even adults in the family.......

Fish pie- it takes time and effort t make these but it is a complete meal i.e protein, veg and carbohydrate packed in one dish..... if interested do let me know i'll type my recipe ........

My experience and the advice i got is that kids easily adapt to nonveg eating... it is vegetables that they say no to ....so i gave my DD only egg until one ...after wards fish particularly fish pie and finally chicken but cooked with veg....... Started prawns quite late ...but she loves it ......
