  • These tasty meatballs are ideal 'dipping' foods, so serve with tomato sauce or yoghurt on the side. Another tasty and nutritious dip is mashed avocado mixed with plain yoghurt.
  • KIDS LOVE MINCE: For children aged 1-13 years, a 100g serving of lean beef or lamb mince provides at least 20% of the average recommended daily intake of iron.
