Iron and Baby

Owen got his first taste of beef today. He loved it! Since we're not doing cereal, I wanted to start iron-rich foods. Most countries now (including the UK and Canada) recommend meat as a first food, but it's a major traditional first food worldwide. I bought one pound of grass-fed ground beef, browned it in a skillet, and blended it in the blender, adding water until it was the right consistency. I added some sweet potatoes to the stuff he ate tonight.

Anyway, I wanted to see how much iron babies needed, and I got some great info from wholesomebabyfood.com Thought I'd paste the link here: http://www.wholesomebabyfood.com/Iron.htm
