Summer is the perfect time to encourage your toddler to try new foods, and what wonderful foods there are on offer during this sweltering season. Here are some tasty foods you might want to try…
There is nothing quite like a cold slice of watermelon on a hot summer’s day, and what’s even better is that watermelon is packed full of vitamins, like Vitamin A, as well as antioxidants. Watermelon is also a great source of water for your little ones, as it is made up of 92% water content. So if you are battling to keep your kids hydrated in the heat then a slice of watermelon may be the answer.
No, we’re not suggesting encouraging your children to chomp into slices of lemon wedges for their lunch, but turning lemons into a homemade lemonade is a great way for your kids to enjoy some of their fabulous benefits.
Mixing some sprigs of mint into your lemonade will add a delicious twist to the drink too. And did you know, both lemons and mint are brilliant natural coolers for summer heat.
Try this mouth-watering mint lemonade recipe.
Blueberries have long been heralded as a ‘superfood’, and it’s not hard to see why. They have tons of health benefits, including being one of the highest antioxidant foods. They can also boost brain power and support digestion – what’s not to love?!
They are a great snacking food for your toddler, and if your little one is new to solid foods then pop a few in this genius ClevaMama ClevaFeeder, so they can get all the goodness of the blueberries, without any fear of choking.
Whether it’s coconut water, coconut milk or simply chunks of coconut flesh, coconut is delicious and good for you! Or you could be a bit more adventurous and try a delicious coconut recipe. We absolutely love this coconut raspberry slush. Or for a tea time snack try this incredibly easy (and healthy) no-bake coconut and date balls.
