Meat is a crucial food when it comes to nutrition. It provides between 60 and 80% of our protein, and if you choose carefully, it can be a healthy, nutritional choice for the whole family. Even better…
My weight-loss ally!
Choosing a balanced diet is one of the most important investments we can make if we want to stay healthy. As well as being excellent sources of protein, vitamins and minerals, nutritionally rich foods are low in calories. Research has shown the benefits of eating a sufficient quantity of lean protein: sugar levels in the blood are maintained at a steady level, we feel full more and muscle mass is preserved even when weight is lost, to name but a few. It’s good to know that Arden’beef, and red meat in general, is renowned for its high levels of protein, which is the easiest thing to burn when you’re on a diet, regardless of how many calories it contains.
Lots of children love red meat. And the good news is that it contains iron, which children need to grow, as well as a lot of their energy requirements. Iron deficiency is common in children and can cause fatigue and repeated infections. This deficiency has also been blamed for difficulties encountered by some children at school.
The desire for a healthy diet
It isn’t always easy to get children to eat meat, especially because of how much chewing it needs. Here are a few easy tips to ensure optimum consumption: serve small portions of very tender meat, perhaps cooking them in stock, serving with a sauce or in the form of a meatloaf, cut up into little pieces, or minced… It isn’t hard to help a child like meat and give them the desire to eat healthily.
The Omega 6/Omega 3 ratio
Nobody has any doubts about the importance of the right ratio of Omega 6 and Omega 3. Nutritionists and fat experts agree that the right proportion in our diet is very important. In order to prevent cardiovascular illnesses and obesity, it is recommended to eat enough Omega 3 and not too much Omega 6. Food surveys have shown that we consume at least ten times more Omega 6 than Omega 3, but the ideal ratio is less than 3. We do everything we can to make sure that Arden’beef respects this ratio, including in particular by giving the cattle rape-based finishing feed.
