Consumption Of Animal Liver For The MPASI Menu?
good night..I want to ask, is it true that the liver in animals is not good to be consumed by toddlers because the liver of an animal is a nest of disease ?? thank you..
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, diseases in animals are also the same as in humans, there are various types and not all of these diseases are lodged in the hearts of animals. Animal liver, including food that is safe to give to babies, may even be given since the baby is 6 months old (when starting MPASI), but you must make sure you cook the animal's liver properly (it must be cooked until it is fully cooked to the inside). Animal liver especially contains a lot of iron and vitamin A. Iron is very needed by your baby and toddler, especially if your baby only gets milk. Because breast milk does not contain much iron and the body cannot make its own iron, this iron must be obtained from food and it is highly recommended to provide babies with iron-containing foods such as red meat, turkey, seafood, spinach, broccoli, including animal hearts. You may give animal hearts to your baby or toddler as long as they are not excessive and still provide other food variations to complement your child's nutritional needs.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
