30 Bananas a Day!

Hi everyone! I'm new here and just wanted to introduce myself and see if anyone had any experience with nursing while on a fruit-based vegan diet. My son is 2 years old and still nurses A LOT, I would like for him to not nurse as frequently but he doesn't eat that much fruit, maybe 2 bananas a day and 1/2 an apple, a handful or two of strawberries, grapes, etc... I don't think he gets near enough calories from food and while I believe in child-led weaning, its getting to be annoying for me most of the time and I feel that if he ate more he would nurse less.  I don't want to wean him. Some people think it is weird that he is still nursing, these same people don't find it the least bit weird that they give their human toddler BOVINE milk because they believe the milk is nutritionally necessary, SMH! 

I am wondering how I can get him to eat more food, any suggestions? 

Also wondering if there are any special considerations for women who are lactating while on a fruit-based diet?

Now you can't be vegan 'cause... Mineral levels in plants are depleted. LifeRegenerator lacks sense

LifeRegenerator appears on RawKristina's video and repeats what an anti-vegan told me days before... that mineral levels in plant foods have depleted by 85 percent
