No too much protein: I don't believe that a toddler eats too much protein on his own. Unless he has kidney disease, any amount of protein the child can eat is fine. I would like to know what is your real concern. Is the child drinking too much milk? That would be a source of concern, because it may lead to iron deficiency. If he eats too much cheeze, that is not a reason for a concern.
