There are many benefits of strawberries for children, as they are rich in vitamin C, B, calcium, phosphorus and folate and probably one of the coolest benefits of strawberries is their ability to block pain receptors in the body. Pineapple is a great source of dietary fiber, manganese, vitamin C and vitamin B1. It has anti-inflammatory properties and is considered a wonderful aid to digestion. Giving your little Popeye spinach, you are providing him with lot of benefits: spinach has the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects and thanks to wealth of vitamin K it helps the bone health. Yogurt is a product of bacterial fermentation of milk and has plenty of good bacteria useful for the digestive tract of babies, and is also rich in proteins and calcium that are important for strong bones.
