Superfoods For Kids
You’ve probably heard all about superfoods- these magical foods that are packed with nutrients and vitamins to improve your overall health. Superfoods aren’t just for health-conscious adults- they can also do wonders for the health of your children! If you’re aiming to get your kids to eat healthier foods, these are the best place to start.
Blueberries are a major wonder fruit- they’re full of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins that can help your body fight cancer, boost your memory and lower cholesterol. They’re also perfect for little kiddie fingers, and make great after school nibbles.
Avocado is a wonderful starter food- easy to mush and loaded with healthy fats and vitamins, avocado is perfect for babies, kids and grownups too. If your kids don’t like the taste of avocado on its own, try making home made guacamole and serving up with tortilla chips for a yummy treat that the whole family will love.
Skip the sugary breakfast cereals and serve your little ones oatmeal for breakfast. It’ll fuel them all the way to lunchtime and get their brains charged up for learning. It’s also the ideal warming winter breakfast, especially when mixed up with berries for added vitamins.
If your kids love French fries, skip the normal potatoes and switch to sweet potato. They’re full of potassium, iron, calcium and B vitamins, and in my opinion, taste even better when sliced up and roasted with herbs than regular old white potatoes.
Yoghurt is a wonderful healthy snack for kids, providing calcium and protein to help along their growing bodies. Luckily, it’s also pretty popular with the little ones, so convincing your kids to eat plenty of yoghurt shouldn’t be too hard. Avoid the sugar-laden flavored varieties and stick to plain yoghurt- add some berries for sweetness and vitamins and a little honey if they really need it.
