The Nutritional Benefits Of Porridge
Most of us grew up eating porridge. We had it as children as a weaning meal. We grew up, went to school and had it as breakfast or as a 10 AM snack. Now that we’re older, we have it as a source of warmth during cold and rainy days. There’s a reason why porridge is such a hit. In this article, we’ll dive into the nutritional benefits of adding blue band instant porridge to your child’s feeding routine.
Porridge is a Great Source of Fibre
Fibre is important as it fills the stomach without adding calories while fighting constipation in your body. During the weaning stage, constipation is quite common as the baby tries to adjust to new foods. Adding Blue Band instant porridge ensures they get the nutrients they need to grow while keeping their bowel movement regular.
Fortified with Nutrients
Pick up Blue Band instant porridge and you’ll get a myriad of health benefits. It has significant amounts of Vitamin D, Zinc, iodine, Vitamin E, Selenium and copper. These nutrients promote bone development, reduce inflammation, help the blood form red blood cells, promote wound healing and longer cell life in kids. With everything happening during this pandemic, eating foods regularly that contain Zinc and Vitamin D, helps to strengthens your immune system
Adaptable To Your Child’s Diet
