Are you looking for nutrient packed foods that contains the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are essential for the healthy growth and development of your child? Check out my list of kid and toddles superfoods!
 
Eggs
Eggs offer protein and vitamin D that helps the body absorb calcium. Eating protein at breakfast helps kids feel satisfied longer.
 
 
Oatmeal
Research shows, kids who eat oatmeal are able to better concentrate and pay attention. Fiber-rich whole grains digest slowly and provide kids with a steady stream of energy.
 
Milk
Protein and calcium in dairy products provide fuel for the brain and body. Protein helps build brain tissue, while milk's calcium keeps kids' bones and teeth strong.
 
Blueberries
Ranked among the healthiest fruits for years, research suggests those little blue yummy fruits protect against heart disease and diabetes, improve brain function, and may help reduce visceral "toxic" belly fat -- a fat that has been linked to obesity and metabolic syndrome.
 
Tomatoes
Many don't realize but tomatoes are actually healthy. They are loaded with lycopene -- a substance that protects against many cancers. Cooking tomatoes makes them healthier because the heat releases the lycopene.
 
Cabbage
With its mild flavor and crunch cabbage contain phytonutrients known to lower the risk for many types of cancer and improve digestion. It also helps clear harmful toxins by releasing enzymes to whisk them out.
 
Salmon
The king of heart-healthy omega-3 fats known to boost brain development, fend off depression, and have superb anti-inflammatory powers. Wild salmon is best, it is lower in mercury and higher in omega-3's.
 
Basil
Perfect for sauces, this herb is packed with antioxidants -- vitamins A, C, and K -- as well as iron, potassium, and calcium and can help improve digestion. It may even ease headaches.
 
Cinnamon
Not only known for its warm and comforting aroma, this spice can help regulate blood sugar and minimize mid-morning energy crashes.
 
Sweet potatoes
The more colourful the fruit or vegetable, the healthier it is. Chemicals called phytochemicals give fruits and vegetables their vibrant hues of green, orange, red and purple and are responsible for disease-fighting elements. Sweet potatoes are loaded with beta carotene, vitamin E, vitamin B6, potassium and iron.
