Superfoods for Your Little Superhero

 

Chances are you’ve heard people talking about superfoods – at the grocery store, online, or on TV. It seems like there’s always a new superfood coming into fashion. But what are superfoods, and are they really so super?

 

What are superfoods?

 

Superfoods are foods with a very high concentration of vital nutrients. That includes foods such as nuts, blueberries, oily fish, sweet potato and avocados.

 

According to the American Heart Association, these foods are great as part of a healthy diet. But they shouldn’t be used as a substitute for a wide-ranging, balanced diet. And some so-called superfoods, such as red wine and chocolate, are definitely not for babies!

 

Best superfoods for babies

 

Here are our top foods for babies. We’ve picked our own list of “superfoods”: delicious, easy to snack on, and full of important nutrients for growth and development. Remember to introduce new superfoods slowly, and at the recommended stage for each food. Give your baby several opportunities to try new foods, as they get used to tastes and textures.

 

Avocados

We’ve talked about how much we love avocados before. They’re full of healthy fats to give your toddler lots of energy to play and grow. And their soft, creamy texture is great for young children. Remember to only ever eat avocados when they are fresh and ripe!

 

Bananas

Bananas are full of fiber, potassium and healthy energy. Plus, they come with Mother Nature’s own natural packaging!

 

Blueberries

These bright, refreshing berries are just the right size for little hands to grab! Blueberries are a convenient, tasty snack, packed with antioxidants and healthy vitamins.

 

Carrots

No, eating carrots won’t make you able to see in the dark – that’s a myth. But these bright veggies are full of important vitamins. And their natural sweetness makes for a refreshing, crunchy snack. Cook and purée carrots for a great starter food for babies four months and up.

 

Salmon

Salmon is a delicious source of protein. When cooked, its soft, flaky texture is just right for little kids. It’s a great way to introduce toddlers to tasty, heart-healthy, oily fish.

 

Sweet potato

Sweet potatoes are a great source of healthy carbs, as well as lots of vitamins. Their soft texture makes them perfect for purée and mash, and little kids will love their gentle, slightly sweet flavor.

Remember, there’s no substitute for a varied, healthy diet. The First Spoons menus offer a range of tasty options for babies and toddlers, with no preservatives, no additives, and minimal sugar and salt setting them ahead in life for a healthy future.
