LENTILS

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Fullplate -

Can’t imag­ine your tod­dler eat­ing lentils? She will if you add them to soups, stews and pasta sauces, or use them to make mini vegie burg­ers. They con­tain a spe­cial form of fi­bre (sol­u­ble) that helps re­duce blood choles­terol lev­els. You might not think choles­terol needs to reg­is­ter on the radar un­til mid­dle age, but sev­eral stud­ies have found high lev­els among young chil­dren. In­tro­duc­ing lentils to your child’s diet now can make a huge dif­fer­ence in her fu­ture.
