A Touch Of Health

Introduce your kids to more and more healthful ingredients, but do it gradually. Think of all that is natural, interesting, nutritious and helps create variety. Start adding flours like ragi, emmer wheat, quinoa, buckwheat and others, include chia seeds, flaxseed oil, dates to health bars, cakes or smoothies. Add chopped vegetables to your savory recipes and fruits to your sweets. Nuts, seeds, herbs and spices are wonderful not only for their weight but also for their overall health.
