Show Notes Chapter Markers

Since beef is something people often think they need to restrict or avoid, I asked special guest & nutrition expert Keli Hawthorne, MS, RD to share what the research says about beef, specifically for young kids!


Keli Hawthorne is a Registered Dietitian and the Director for Clinical Research for the Department of Pediatrics at the Dell Medical School at the University of Texas at Austin. 


In this episode, I asked Keli about:

  • the health benefits of beef and which cuts she recommends 
  • the differences between organic and grass-fed beef
  • how much beef is appropriate for babies and young children, and 
  • how to serve beef to your littles


View the research that supported Keli’s answers here.
