Bacon Is Good Baby Food
 At what age may children have meat? This is a question which has not been definitely settled but according to Dr Isaac A Abt(sic], meat carefully ground or chopped can be digested by an infant as young as 2 months/ At any rate, as soon as the child has teeth with which to chew, meat may be introduced into his diet and it will be good for the development of the teeth according to Dr EB Forbes who says, “Spare the meat grinder and teach the child to use his teeth.”
 Bacon is the first meat recommended for children and it can be given as early as the eighth month. Bacon is valued in the diet of the child because the fat is next to butter fat the most easily assimilated of the food fats and its protein is as easily digested as any other meat protein which is regarded as almost completely digested. Through experiments it has been shown that the average person utilizes 96.3 per cent of cooked bacon. For children bacon must be crisply cooked and the excess of fat drained from it.

Post Script:


I made a similar version for dinner using grated sharp cheddar cheese, bacon, sun-dried tomatoes, and a touch of mayo- just enough to bind it all well.  I had it on Flackers – flax seed crackers, gluten free, grain free.

The diced sun-dried tomatoes were a clearance item at the small health food store in the next town over- tiny, locally owned, charming.  I hope that cancels out the price of the Flackers, which, even on sale, were more than four dollars for a five ounce box. Of course, they are very filling and you can’t eat more than three or four at once, however hungry you might be.

    This sounds really good for a lunch, spread in celery. I try to be low-carb during the week and allow myself to have a weekend dessert with the family. It works for me!

    How much bacon do you have to cook to get 1/4 cup of pieces?

    Sounds yummy! I’m trying really hard to watch my carbs. But then hubby brings home donuts so I watch them going into my mouth *hah*
