Can my baby eat Processed meat

From +1 year

Is processed meat healthy for children?

Processed meat like sausages or cured meats are not a healthy option for anyone, including your baby. We advise to definitely refrain from giving any processed meats to babies under one year old, since they're very high in salt. After that age you can give some processed meats to your child if you want to. However, take into account that the nutritional value is low and that processed meats are generally high in bad fats.

How to serve processed meat

Cook the meat as indicated on the pack. Usually that means pan frying until completely cooked.
