Benefits of Red Meat
Lean red meat is a really versatile ingredient which is great for many different recipes. Many of these are child friendly and quick to make. Think spaghetti bolognese, shepherds pie, pulled pork and many more. Red meat is also healthy. It provides a range of important nutrients. These include iron, zinc, B vitamins, selenium and potassium. Often these nutrients are low in children and toddlers so eating lean red meat is a great way to add them into the diet.
Red meat has been in the news a lot recently and its health benefits are being overlooked. To help show range of lovely mealy that can be made with red meat BritMums and the Meat Advisory panel are inviting bloggers to join the #HealthyRedMeat challenge. The challenge is to create a delicious family friendly meal that can be made with pork, beef or lamb.

Peel and slice an onion and core and slice some apples. Add some butter to the pan along with the apples and onion. Gently cook the apples and onion until the apples are soft, about ten minutes. Put the chops back in the pan and add a little stock. Cook until tender. You can use white wine instead of stock for a more grown up flavour. A teaspoon of sage will also add a little more flavour.
