Children

Animal proteins such as beef are considered to be high quality and ‘complete protein’ foods that contain all nine essential amino acids.  By having a portion of animal protein every day, a growing child can get the essential amino acids needed for growth and development and tissue repair.  Beef contains iron which is essential for making red blood cells, contributing to optimal brain development and functioning, supporting the immune system and helping the body fight infection.

Zinc is essential for growth and impacts on cognitive function

Vitamin B which is important for energy production and metabolism

 

Elderly

Good quality protein is source of healing and regeneration.  Anaemia is common in older adults, caused by poor absorption of iron due to changes in the gastrointestinal tract.  Red meat is excellent source of easily absorbable iron.  The elderly have a decreased appetite and need to obtain lot of nutrients from a small amount of food, and beef & lamb are nutrient dense.
