It is difficult to find the right balance when providing nutritious food for our children. We eat with our eyes, and this is definitely the case with children. Nobody has ever heard a child say ‘that broccoli looks delicious’, therefore we must use our imagination. Chia seeds are full of antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium. They also contain high amounts of natural protein, so you feel fuller longer. But how can we make them appealing to children?

The answer to this question is chia pudding. The magical thing about chia pudding is its convenience, versatility and affordability. Whether you choose to prepare it for breakfast, lunch or as a light dessert it will stay fresh for up to five days. It is versatile as you can choose different toppings depending on your child's taste buds. An added bonus is the affordability, chia seeds are relatively inexpensive to buy. Therefore you can create budget saving meals to please the whole family.
