Q.

RAW FOOD

MY 3 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER EATS ANYTHING THAT IS RAW RELIGIOUSLY i.e. EVERY TIME WHEN IM COOKING OR SLICING SOMETHING, SHE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A PIECE . RED MEAT, CHICKEN, MIELIE-MEAL POWDER, ONION, POTATO ETC.

WILL THIS HAVE AN EFFECT ON HER HEALTH OR WHAT? CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR FROM ANYONE WHO HAVE AN ANSWER.

THANKING YOU

Do not give her raw meat and especially chicken as she may catch a very nasty salmonella or other infection causing severe diarrhoea and other problems.
