When can I feed my Baby Pork?

IRON COMES FIRST! Health Canada now advises that first solid foods for infants be iron-rich. By about 6 months of age, baby should be served meat, fish, poultry, or meat alternatives daily.

WHY? Baby needs iron for optimal brain development and growth. At 6 months baby’s iron stores are depleted so a food source is needed. Pork is one of nature’s best sources of iron.
