playgroup

How does one get your child to eat more fruits and vegetables, especially plenty of those magic superfoods?

I’ve blended, smashed, made smoothies and lost stay over countless creative dishes during the years in attempts to urge more purple and green inside my child. The foremost ‘accepted’ trick, by far, was child-friendly smoothies and ice lollies which function as a fast on-the-go breakfast for teens, a treat for nephews on a hot day and tick all those superfoods and 5-A-Day boxes.

What Exactly Are Superfoods? 

Superfoods are foods that haven’t been refined, processed or preserved and are very near their original source. they’re mostly plant-based but also include some fish and dairy. Superfoods are nutritional, providing child’s bodies with essential components to keep them healthy, such as fats, vitamins, minerals, lean protein and iron and minerals. Thus the term “Superfoods’ ‘ was born as a bunch of nutritionally packed foods all of which benefit your child’s health, contribute to the development of proper brain function and a powerful system focused on a healthy lifestyle. Blueberries, salmon, kale and acai are just some samples of foods that have garnered the “Superfood” label. 

However, there are no set criteria for determining what’s and what’s not a superfood as they don’t have their own specific food group. As children have different dietary needs than adults, we’d like to maximize their nutritional intake with child-friendly superfoods, best served right within the morning to fuel them through the day. Here are our top picks to show your children into superfood super heroes!

Berry” strong power for our immune system

Berries

When it involves one of the healthiest foods available on this planet, berries are right there at the top of the list.

The blue and blackberries definitely top the charts when it comes to being superfoods and together with their red and pink sisters, all of them make great smoothies. Buying berries in Singapore is often tricky and can come with quite a high price tag so explore the frozen options. Berries don’t lose their superpowers after they are frozen and stored easily, able to be used at the drop of a child’s superman cape!
