I'm surprised no one has replied to your post. I should mention that some members on rawpaleoforum have shared details on how to raise young children/babies on this kind of diet, so you could ask there.
In the meantime, here's a thread giving details on how to get started on a rawpalaeo diet, getting used to the taste of raw meats etc.:-
and here's a thread on where to get hold of decent, high quality raw foods:-
(Americans generally use large farms like Slanker's or NorthStar Bison for their raw meats, while people from the UK, either prefer to order from smaller farms or get their foods from local farmers' markets.
Anyway, as regards safety, I'd imagine that feeding a 2-year-old on raw meat would be fine(as long as it's ground I've heard of infants choking on large pieces of food, which might be an issue). As for parasites, you have to bear in mind that all organic-raised animals are routinely dewormed so that they aren't an issue, and if you've been breastfeeding your child, you should by now be aware that bacteria aren't really a problem for infants, it's feeding them on unhealthy foods such as grainfed meats that are way more likely to cause health-problems re bacteria or anything else.It's the environment that is the key not the so-called "pathogen".
As for the issue of frozen meat, it's not ideal, perhaps, but it is not hamrful to you in the way cooked meat is with all the heat-cteated toxins of the latter.However, frozen meat generally is somewhat lacking in taste by comparison to nonfrozen raw meats - this is to do with the rupture of cell-walls caused by freezing, and it also means that prefrozen meat, once it's thawed, should be eaten as quickly as possible as the ruptured cell-walls of the food mean that nutrient-loss is faster than with nonfrozen raw meats.

> My husband and I are thinking about trying a raw meat diet. We are both a little apprehensive (more about the taste and our 2yold), especially since we have a 2 year old son that I am still nursing. Can anyone give us some advice on how to get started and where to get good sources of meat. We do get grass-fed and organic meats from our co-op, but it is all frozen. Is it safe to start a 2 year old on the diet?
