10 Superfoods for Kids


4
Berries

For adults and kids alike, berries are some of the most nutritious superfoods for the body. Blueberries, strawberries and raspberries are all key to providing potassium, vitamin C, fiber, carbohydrates and free-radical fighting antioxidants. Add the fact that there's very little fat and no cholesterol and it should be clear that fresh berries are a must on every kid's menu. Since berries are sweet, your child will probably enjoy the taste, which is an added bonus. Add berries to oatmeal, yogurt and whole grain cereals to provide an extra vitamin kick. You can also grow your own fresh berries in a small container garden. Get your kids involved in the project so they enjoy the fruits of their labor.
