Although Ben appears perfectly healthy and very full of
beans, the truth is that he's living on a pretty restricted diet, especially
when it comes to protein. Fortunately he's great at eating fruit, fairly good at
vegetables, and excellent when it comes to anything "treaty" like
biscuits, cake and ice-cream. But he's almost entirely a self-imposed
vegetarian (not that he'd understand the concept yet!) and will only eat
protein in the form of cheese, yoghurt or nuts.
Putting it like that, things don't seem too bad. Except it's
a bit inconvenient and embarrassing when the other children are eating normal meals
like sandwiches, pasta, sausages, fish fingers, baked beans, scrambled egg...
you get the idea!
