In a review of the literature Hardy found that:
(a) Fat is necessary in the diets of infants and young children because of their extraordinary energy needs.
(b) Deficiencies of dietary fat during infancy may affect the development of the central nervous system, including visual development and intelligence.
(c) Young children who receive fat-restricted diets are more likely not to consume the recommended dietary allowances of many nutrients.
Hardy concludes that fat should not be restricted in the diets of infants and young children.
|Food Mall: Link Sausage|
◦1 green onion, chopped
◦1 avocado, chopped
For the sausage, use a knife to split the link 3/4 of the way through and use your fingers to split it flat. Cook the sausages in a saute pan, that’s on medium high heat, with the casing side down. Why? Because the casing needs to render out otherwise the sausage will curl up, won’t crisp up and will taste oddly chewy.
While the sausage is browning, whisk together the eggs with a bit of salt. Remember, the salt helps keep the eggs tender. After the sausage is done, scramble the eggs in the sausage renderings, however you like–runny, slightly runny, hard and rubbery.
To serve, lay a few sausage links down on your plate, top with eggs, spoon with salsa and then sprinkle the green onions and avocado on top.
