Margaux's Nutrition Nibble

Q&A with Margaux!!

Perezcious parent Dina wants to help her little ones healthy, without them knowing it! She asks?

"What's a good way to add healthy food into my picky eater's diet?"

very own Perezitos' wellness expert Margaux has a fab suggestion!

"Chia seeds have been getting a lot of press lately….and for good reason! They are the perfect way to pack powerful nutrients into your child's diet without them even knowing they are eating a health food!

Chia seeds are virtually tasteless and can be added to soups, salads, smoothies, veggie dips, and yogurt. They are loaded with protein, fiber, and antioxidants, which are important to help you child stay well as we go into cold and flu season. Chia seeds are also a good source of bone-building calcium, fluid-balancing potassium, and magnesium. How much chia should you eat per day? Try adding about 1-2 tablespoons to your meals."

Delicious and nutritious! Sounds like moms can benefit for a little Chia too!

British Scientists Create Super Broccoli!

Filed under: FoodHealth

Super Brocoli

Heart disease beware! Super broccoli is here!

A team of British scientists have developed a new breed of broccoli that contains two to three times the normal amount of glucoraphanin, which is a nutrient believed to help ward off heart disease.

The nutrient is only found in broccoli in significant amounts and works by breaking fat down in the body.

Richard Mithen, the man who lead the team of scientists responsible for the broccoli breakthrough, said:

"Vegetables are a medicine cabinet already. When you eat this broccoli … you get a reduction in cholesterol in your blood stream."

The new product, called Beneforte super broccoli, has been on a few shelves in California and Texas over the last year, but has recently been unveiled in London as well.

The rest of America can look forward to tasting the "slightly sweeter" (because of less sulphur) and more nutritious broccoli later this fall.

UK Group Says Vitaminwater’s Nutrition Claims Are Misleading

UK Group Says Vitaminwater’s Nutrition Claims Are Misleading

Britain’s ad regulator has put its foot down with Vitaminwater and its claims about being a healthy drink. They have ordered Coca-Cola (who owns Vitaminwater) to stop running ads that tout Vitaminwater as nutritious.

The ad regulator says that a drink with between 4 and 5 teaspoons of sugar is not “nutritious.”

We think this is pretty spot on — sugary drinks are not “nutritious.” If you like Vitaminwater, try their sugar-free varieties.
