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?
