Organic Beef Liver Powder for Children

There is a growing awareness of some of the damaging ingredients found in pre-packaged meals, particularly those that feed and grow the next generation. More parents are starting to turn away from the convenience of pre-packaged baby foods and are returning to traditional ways to nourish their little ones through consciously sourced, nutrient-dense wholefoods.

Gram-for-gram, Beef Liver is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet and is once again making an appearance in many family’s home-prepped meals. Beef Liver is an incredibly nutritious wholefood, packed with nutrients that are essential for children’s proper growth and development.

Freeze-dried Beef Liver Powder is an excellent way to access premium quality organic beef liver without any of the guesswork, however many are unsure how much  beef liver for toddlers and children is the right amount. This blog will outline the suggested beef liver serving sizes for children and ways beef liver powder can be introduced.


Key Nutrients for Growing Children

Beef liver powder for kids is loaded with nutrients essential for growing bodies, some of which include:


Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is especially important for growing children because of its contribution to healthy brain and nervous system function. B12 also plays a critical role in energy production and red blood cell formation, aiding in proper growth and development.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is known for its role in maintaining healthy teeth, bones, skin, and soft tissues. It also aids in maintaining a healthy immune system and assisting in the proper functioning of the heart, kidneys, lungs, and other organs.

Vitamin B9 (Folate)

Folate has a close relationship with B12, with both vitamins depending on each other to work properly. Similar to B12, Folate is crucial during periods of rapid growth as it helps our tissues & cells to grow and function.

Heme Iron

Heme Iron is incredibly important for brain development and immune function.  Beef Liver contains bioavailable heme Iron (Iron in its most usable form) and the synergistic nutrients such as copper, folate & vitamin B12 which assist with iron uptake in the body.


Beef Liver Powder Children’s Dosage

As beef liver powder is a natural wholefood simply freeze-dried with nothing added, beef liver for kids can be integrated as soon as solid foods are introduced from around 6 months of age.

The serving sizes below are based on the recommended Vitamin A intake for children and the amounts of Vitamin A found specifically in Cell Squared Organic Beef Liver Powder. Per 3 g adult dosage (6 capsules or 1 tsp powder), Cell Squared Organic Beef Liver Powder contains 960mcg (3200IU) Vitamin A (as verified through nutritional testing).
