A regular visit to the supermarket will usually consist any or all of the fruits below, sometimes more, depending on what’s in season. I made it a habit to train my daughter at an early age in eating fresh fruits for snacks instead of giving her junk or any unhealthy food. Grapes are her favorite not to mention ripe mangoes, but now that watermelon and melon are in season, she has included it in her preferences.
Actually, one of the best practices to do cleansing and detoxification is by the use of fruit. (Detoxifying means counteracting the toxins in our body.) Fruit also contains a high amount of fiber which aids in digestion and therefore results to regular bowel movements. Because of its being high in liquid content it aids the body to wash out toxins resulting to healthy body cleanse, and in
some most cases a drop in excess body weight since fruit is also low in calories. While it is a known fact that fruits are good for the body because they contain important vitamins and other nutrients, it is also a good source of antioxidants that prevents premature ageing and most importantly, cancer.
When my daughter was about six months old and just started into solids, out of excitement on this new milestone, I fed her those instant/ready to eat cereals but then an allergy showed up-wheat allergy! While it is a common allergy among infants, and usually disappears later as the baby gets older just like in Ceana’s case, I learned my lesson in feeding and this is why I resulted to giving her fresh fruits since then. However if your child exhibits allergic symptoms from some new food you have given them, it might be worthwhile researching something like this food intolerance test UK and similar testing kits that enable you to get your children’s allergenic information. It also became a good bonding time for us, that is snacking/eating together and being healthy all in one shot! What about you, what are your feeding tips?

When my son was younger, I put fruit in smoothies. He called them milkshakes 🙂

I was not aware that eating fruits also helped prevent cancer. Thank you for this "helpful" info!

I read something interesting a couple days ago – the more fruits you eat while you're pregnant, the better chance your child will grow to enjoy them, as well =)

You may want to consider testing your daughter for wheat intolerance when she is older. Me and my two sons have discovered that we are genetically intolerant to gluten. Just something to keep in mind 🙂

You did a great job with this article. When I was pregnant with one of my sons I ate a lot of watermelon. Turns out that he loves it all kinds of fruit.

I, too always offered fresh fruit. Along with yogurt and fresh vegetables as well. My son still makes the same healthy choices in his diet today!
