Videos Highlight Use of Lamb in Weaning Recipes

08 April 2016

UK - A series of weaning videos have been created to educate Scottish families about the role of Scotch Beef PGI, Scotch Lamb PGI and Specially Selected Pork in a healthy balanced diet, from highchair to dinner table.

As part of Quality Meat Scotland’s (QMS) Good Family Food focus, blogger and Great British Bake Off contestant Holly Bell has created three weaning recipes, with full serves and finger food for babies, toddlers and families of four.

The quick-step recipe videos are being promoted on Quality Meat Scotland’s Good Family Food Facebook page to inspire and encourage families to introduce quality meat produce to their daily diet from a young age.

Recipe curator and author of Recipes from a Normal Mum, Holly Bell, said: “It’s great to be working with QMS on this digital campaign to promote good quality food during the weaning stage. As a mum of three myself, I’m constantly trying to create recipes which suit the whole family while providing the boys with all of the nutrients they need.

“I’ve put a fresh slant on classic dishes to suit the whole family, making use of Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Specially Selected Pork, with portion options from snacks and starters to sit-down dinners.”

Jenni Henderson, qualified nutritionist and Health and Education Executive at Quality Meat Scotland commented: “The introduction of protein rich foods, like Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Specially Selected Pork when weaning is essential for babies’ growth and development as well as being an important source of iron needed to build babies’ iron levels.

“These videos are a great way to communicate this to a wide audience and show how quick and easy it is to cook with these quality products. Holly has produced three recipes using Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Specially Selected Pork to showcase their versatility when creating meals for children and adults alike.”

The recipe videos are supported by an introductory video and a Q&A video which will address parents’ misconceptions and concerns when it comes to weaning, helping families feel confident when introducing red meat to their children’s diet.
