I think it is important that you consult a clinical dietitian before you put a baby younger than 1 year on a vegetarian diet. Visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area. The dietitian will have to assess her growth and help you plan what foods you can include in her diet so that she grown properly and does not develop protein, iron, zinc, calcium, vitamin B12 and omega-3 deficiencies.
