I was wondering if you had any research that would indicate how early children could start eating raw meat? I'm aware that the risk would be too high for toddlers, but, when I have kids of my own, I'd like them to be introduced to raw meat before 10, so they are used to it for their teenage years (where a combination of raw and cooked foods could help them develop optimally).
I'm pondering starting out with rare meat. Freezing it, defrosting it quickly, part-frying it and premasticating or blending it a bit for toddlers or slicing it into strips for pre-teens. But I'm not certain about the relative safety of it and the research is hard to come by and unclear.
Thanks for your time.
