Since beef is something people often think they need to restrict or avoid, I asked special guest & nutrition expert Keli Hawthorne, MS, RD to share what the research says about beef, specifically for young kids!
Keli Hawthorne is a Registered Dietitian and the Director for Clinical Research for the Department of Pediatrics at the Dell Medical School at the University of Texas at Austin.
In this episode, I asked Keli about:
- the health benefits of beef and which cuts she recommends
- the differences between organic and grass-fed beef
- how much beef is appropriate for babies and young children, and
- how to serve beef to your littles
View the research that supported Keli’s answers here.
