2-3 ounces: Children lose appetite if you put too much food on their plate. Usually the meat should be half to 2/3 the size of the palm of their hand, which is probably about 2 ounces. They can do fine with no meat at all, as long as you are careful to include vegetable protein and other sources of iron.
