The nutritional profile of dry fruits and nuts includes protein, vitamins, minerals, fibre, and healthy fats. These foods are easy to digest and provide all the energy a child needs. Ensure that your child consumes dates, nuts, and dried fruits during the winter months to reap their health benefits. The combination of milk and homemade dry fruit powder can keep your toddler active and healthy while keeping them warm and promoting the development of their immune system. Furthermore, dates are a great alternative to the sugary cereals and milk powders available on the market today. They contain vitamins, minerals, and other essential elements, including calcium, iron, and potassium.
Tip: If you’re having a hard time getting your child to consume dry fruits and nuts, try incorporating dry fruits into smoothies or use them in fun baking recipes and if possible, get your children involved in the cooking process!
