2. Understanding nutrition 

“Beef is a true nutritional power pack, providing a host of important vitamins and minerals for children and adults alike,” says Jilly Greed, founder of Ladies in Beef. Understand the nutritious benefits of beef and share this knowledge far and wide with friends and family. Beef is naturally rich in protein and it provides iron and vitamins that are essential for good health and wellbeing. It’s also a great source of nutrients and is rich in zinc.
