With 4-5 servings per pack they are a great way to get the whole family sharing and enjoying a meal.
Why is meat good for babies
Iron deficiency anaemia is the most common nutritional problem during early childhood. When a baby is born they inherit stores of iron from their mothers which start to run out at 6 months. Babies need this iron for brain development, and red meat is the best source of iron. Mighty Meaty Bites contain both pork and beef, a great source of iron.
Meat is also a great source of protein. Meat, as well as dairy products, fish and soy, contain essential amino acids (these are the amino acids that the body needs but can not make itself). Humans need amino acids for growth and repair and so it is important for babies to get enough protein.
