Organic Superfoods | Some inspiring foods to add to the children’s menu

#1 Organic Avocado

It is not easy to persuade kids to eat avocado but try grilling it and adding a squeeze of lemon.  Otherwise make your own guacamole at home to spread on rice cakes as a snack.

#2 Hemp oil

This is not available in the UAE but for those in the UK, US, and other countries use this as a salad oil which is a great source of protein.

#3 Organic Spinach

I usually buy a whole organic bulk for the freezer and if I can get it fresh locally, even better.  I chuck it into soups and stews for the children.  The list of goodness is just endless including iron, Vitamin C, Beta Carotene, and also has anti-oxidants that helps with ageing.

#4 Organic Walnuts

Great brain food.  They say that most foods look that the part of the body they are suppose to help the most.  It is a great source of protein, anti-oxidants and much more.  If your children don’t like it, add it to their freshly homemade pesto sauce, or grind it up and sprinkle over their cereal or salads or even soups.

#5 Organic Cinnamon

It is important to purchase quality cinnamon because there is a lot of poor quality spice on the market that makes little or no difference if you add it to your food.  Cinnamon is great for regulating your blood sugar and has a long list of health benefits such as lowering cholesterol.  We sprinkle it on everything.  Best to grind up your own cinnamon for full effect.
