Q.

Beef Bone Marrow

Is it ok to feed a 8 mth baby beef bone marrow? I see woolies sells them. She is allergic to dairy, gluten and citrus, so I need to be very careful with what she eats.
Thank you.

This should not be a problem, but I would rather encourage you to give your child a normal balanced meal (I am not sure how the allergies was confirmed, but it may be worthwhile to reconsider). Bone marrow is nearly all fat and more than a small amount at a time would not be advised. You may also ask our on line dietician.
