Most parents want to feed their families a quick, healthy, and hearty meal. I asked several parents what they like to feed their families for dinner.

Health Benefits For Growing Kids
Grass-fed beef can be part of a healthy, well-balanced diet. This beef is a good source of protein, iron, calcium, vitamin D and other nutrients. According to pediatric dietitian Laura Gibofsky, MS, RD, CDN, “Omega-3s are essential fatty acids that help feed the brain and keep it healthy.” This is a key reason you should factor Dierks grass-fed beef into your family’s diet.
We provide meat that is high in protein because we provide you with lean meat. Protein plays such an important role. According to menshealth.co.uk, “Protein is the fastest way to build muscle, burn fat and get the body you want.” It supplies energy and muscle preservation which endurance athletes need. Protein plays an important role in the repair, care, and improvement of body tissues. Men’s Health also talks about how lean beef is one of the top ten best sources of protein sources.
Aside from the Protein in lean grass-fed beef, it also provides calcium. The importance of high levels of calcium intake for children, especially important for athletes, can help prevent breaking bones and stress fractures.
Another great source that comes from lean grass-fed beef is, Iron. Iron, helps oxygen move in the blood stream to all body parts that are in need of it. According to kidshealth.org, “Without enough iron, the body can’t make hemoglobin (“the protein molecule in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to the body’s tissues and returns carbon dioxide from the tissues back to the lungs”) and makes fewer red blood cells. This means tissues and organs won’t get the oxygen they need.” If they don’t get oxygen, then the body parts start to fail.
