By simply sprinkling superfoods on the food you prepare you can greatly increase the nutrient density of your child's meal.
Here are 3 simple ones to get started with:
1. Seaweed: Pop some roasted seaweed sheets into your food processor and pulse until it becomes a fine powder. Sprinkle through rice, soups or pasta dishes for added depth of flavor, as well as several beneficial micronutrients and important minerals, such as calcium and iron.
2. Hemp seeds: Hemp seeds are a great source of protein, omega fatty acid and antioxidants. Many people add hemp seeds to smoothies, but you can also sprinkle through cereals and oatmeal, mix into salads or roasted vegetables, sprinkle over grilled cheese sandwiches and mac n' cheese or coat slippery foods like avocado slices (particularly good for babies doing baby-led weaning).
3. Nutritional yeast: Nutritional yeast is a great source of protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and has a deep umami flavor that is compared to parmesan cheese. Simply sprinkle over popcorn, pasta or in soups or sauces to add flavor and nutrition!
