The tiny flaxseeds come packed with the goodness of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are vital for optimal development of the brain.  Flaxseeds can be grounded and added to breakfast cereals or added directly into the flour.

  •  Sweet Potato

The Vitamin A content in sweet potatoes is great for eyesight, which is great in today’s world where children are forever plonked in front of the TV. It also acts as an antioxidant providing further health benefits.

Get plenty of good old yogurt into your little one’s diet, to get an added dose of calcium and proteins. Yogurt also contains the ‘good bacteria’ or the probiotics to improve the overall health.

  • Ragi

Amongst all the cereals Ragi contains the most quantity of calcium. It is also a very good source of iron, and if Ragi is allowed to be sprouted the Vitamin C content also increases. It can easily be made into porridges, cookies or breads.

  • Fruits
