Perezitos.com's nutrition expert Margaux J. Rathbun wants to help parents feed their kids with the right foods by showcasing a specialty food every week.
This week, it's all about blueberries!
"What kid doesn't love the sweet taste of juicy blueberries…especially when they are freshly picked on a sunny day! Did you know that blueberries have been shown to protect your kid's brains from oxidative stress? They have also been shown to promote optimal brain-function, making blueberries known as "brain food". Blueberries are also loaded with powerful antioxidants to keep your kid's immune system strong and reservatrol, a phytonutrient that has been linked to preventing heart disease and cancer. Blueberries are also a fabulous source of vitamin C, vitamin E, and manganese."
