Vegetarian amongst the carnivores

My son has always been an excellent eater, but I think he may be going vegetarian on us. I buy hormone free meat and the last two times I made meat, roasted chicken last night, and a roast last week he only ate the vegetables or starches. I hope this is just a phase, because I would have to make sure he is getting sufficient iron, and we are fans of tofu but protein alternatives are not a big part of my regular cooking repertoire. I guess this is going to be another learning experience for me, ah motherhood is filled with them. Atleast I currently follow vegetarian moms on Twitter @vegetrianmom, so I will look to my mom network for advise.
I know parents always complain about fussy eaters, but I always try to not introduce foods that I don't want him to eat, so he doesn't acquire a taste for it, like white bread, white sugar, etc. I am hoping never having food that is not good for him, means he doesn't crave those things, right?
