Choose food that provides nutritional benefits while supporting your child’s healthy growth.
I like to embrace a practical approach. Making sure to stick to whole foods wherever possible, here are some variations of food combinations.
A wonderful combination of fruit that will provide all the necessary nutrients could be:
Apple, pear, grapes, peach, orange, plums, mixed berries or mixed tropical fruit mango, papaya, pineapple, kiwi.
Vegetables to combine could be the following:
Carrot, celery and/or cucumber sticks, julienne style peppers, half circle radishes, cherry tomatoes, mixed seeds and/or nuts.
Fresh: mixed green salad leaves, spinach and/or sprouts, shredded carrots/cabbage/kale
Dressing: avocado with lemon juice, herbs e.g. Thyme, Sage, Oregano, Herb Salt, Black Pepper
Steamed: vegetables such as: potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts
Cooked: legumes, lentils or green string beans
