#97: The Nutritional Power of Super Seeds for your Baby and Toddler

Bowls of flax seeds and chia seeds

On this episode of the podcast I’ve got some special guests joining me to talk all about the benefits of flax seeds, chia seeds and hemp hearts – otherwise known as super seeds! Kim and Tina are the founders of Tiny Sprouts Foods, where they formulate seed mixes for babies and toddlers to help them meet their nutritional needs. And as a lover of the benefits of seeds, I’m always tossing them into dishes we make at home as an added nutrition booster because it’s just so easy!

Kim and Tina explain many nutritional benefits of seeds – fiber, omega-3’s and iron are among some of the nutrients they offer, plus so many more – and this episode digs deep into them all…plus how they can even help a picky eater! And if you have a toddler, you know the importance of preventing constipation and seeds are a great example of a high fiber food for constipation. Make sure to listen in to get more details and find out easy and safe ways to incorporate them into your baby or toddler’s meals! Plus… if you’re wondering how the heck you store them, you’ll want to check this episode out too! Trust me when I say you’ll be shocked (I know I was)!
