13 Superfoods Kids Love to Eat!


Proper nutrition is vitally important for the development of children’s minds and bodies. If you are concerned with feeding your kids the best nutrition possible, then consider introducing them to superfoods. Superfoods are highly nutritious items that are typically considered whole foods. This  means that they are left in their pure, unprocessed state.

There are no regulations on what is considered a superfood. They can be high in mineral content, high in vitamins, or high in phytochemicals and antioxidants. Superfoods are typically low in saturated and trans fats, are not highly processed, and don’t contain a lot of food additives.

The definition of a superfood is, “a food considered especially nutritious or otherwise beneficial to health and wellbeing.” With so many unhealthy processed foods on the market, knowing what superfoods are is an important step in making healthy choices.

Many superfoods are not kid friendly, so here are 13 amazing choices that your children will love!

1. Blueberries

These delicious berries have the highest antioxidant count compared to all other fruit varieties. Eating plenty of blueberries every day has been shown to lower your risk of type 2 diabetes. Blueberries are also a childhood favorite snack because of their fun shape and great flavor. Serve blueberries on their own when they are in season. Frozen blueberries are a great option for the winter months when it can be difficult to find fresh produce at an affordable price. Freezing doesn’t damage the antioxidants so you can feel good serving this fruit.
