Eating red meat with the #HealthyRedMeat challenge

This post may contain affiliate links.

My daughter Daisy has a range of allergies, as she suffers from a health condition called FPIES. Fortunately this hasn’t affected her eating pork, which is great. But she can’t eat chicken. At all. Because of this I’ve been working hard with a dietician to ensure that Daisy has a great diet and is getting all the nutrition that she can. Daisy eats LOTS of fruit and vegetables, fortunately, and takes a Wellbaby multivitamin too once per day. We were invited to take part in the Britmums #HealthyRedMeat challenge and this is how we got on.

#HealthyRedMeat - Pork chilli

In our home we LOVE a slow cooker dinner. This slow cooker chilli is one that I have wrote about before and we LOVE it! However this time we have made it with lean pork rather than beef. Daisy will eat a small portion of chilli when I make it and it is great for helping her practice with her spoon. I love that I can throw the ingredients together and by the end of the day we’ll have a wonderful meal to enjoy together.

#HealthyRedMeat - Daisy eating her chilli

As you can see Daisy absolutely loves a nice slow cooker chilli and is a real fan! I love knowing that Daisy is getting a whole range of nutrients that toddlers and children are often low in, including iron, zinc, B vitamins, selenium and potassium.

I’m always striving to do the best that I can for my daughter and making sure she gets a small portion of red meat a couple of times a week goes some way towards helping with this. I want Daisy to have great nutrition, be healthy, lots of nice vitamins and enjoy her food. Which she does as you can see!
