    Chester is 2 years old and weighs 34 lbs. Which of these is a reasonable protein intake (not too high, not too low) for him for a single day? A) 2 tbsp. Peanut butter (7 g protein), a hot dog (5 g protein), and 3/4 cup of milk (6 g protein) B) 3 tbsp. Peanut butter (10,5 g protein) , 2 hot dogs (10 g protein), and 1 cup of milk (8 g protein) C) a hot dog (5 g protein) , 2 tbsp. Peanut butter (7 g protein), and 1/4 cup broccoli (1 g protein) D) 2 tbsp. Peanut butter (7 g protein) , 1/2 cup broccoli (2 g protein), and 1 piece of cheese (3,5 g protein)

    The answer is C.) a hot dog (5 g protein) , 2 tsp. Peanut butter (7 g protein) and 1/4 cup broccoli (1 g protein). That adds up to 13 grams of protein. The child should have 0,36 grams of protein per pound of weigh based on his age, according to dietary recommendations. Multiply 0,36*34=12,24 that is required for the child. Answer is the best answer it adds up to 13 grams.
