Beef Meatballs with Carrot and Apple

Beef Meatballs with Carrot and Apple

Babies and toddlers will especially love these meatballs as my secret ingredient of grated apple adds a touch of sweetness and oodles of child appeal. Remember that iron is the commonest nutritional deficiency in children and is vital for their physical and mental development. Red meat is one of the richest and most easily absorbed sources of iron.
