4 Unexpected Superfoods Your Baby Should Try
Your baby has started solids but you're running out of exciting ideas for mealtime. Don't fret, we got you. Yumi works with leading nutritionists and chefs to create more than 50 flavors to tantalize little taste buds and get your muffin max nutrition. Scientists have identified this period -- a baby's first 1,000 days, as the most critical period for nutrition. Their brain development, physical development, metabolism -- even their preference for sweets -- is all being set during this period -- so what they eat really, really matters.
Here are four superfoods you should consider incorporating into your babe's diet. All of these are staples in Yumi meals.
Okinawa Sweet Potato is a purple powerhouse of nutrients - it's lower in natural sugar than your classic sweet potato and packed with loads of nutrients. They're high in potassium, beta carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, and more. Yum.
Chia Seeds are the superfood that we wish we grew up eating. They're high in antioxidants and omega-3s, a good source of protein and dietary fiber and they're high in calcium, potassium and magnesium. Soak them and properly mix before serving.
Flax Seeds are one of the world's healthiest foods. These fiber-rich seeds are an amazing source of omega-3 essential fatty acids, which is critical for brain development as well as vitamin B1 and many major minerals. You can sprinkle ground flax into many of your baby's favorite meals.
Broccoli is the food that every parent wants their kid to eat more of. It's a delicious, nutrient dense vegetable that features protein, vitamin C, E and K, Calcium, Iron as well as many important minerals.
