Health Benefits of Quinoa

Quinoa is so healthy that it literally has superpowers!

  • Protein: quinoa is a great source of protein for baby. Protein helps support the growth and development of babies.
  • Fiber: this ancient grain contains almost twice as much fiber as other grains, which makes it great for babies’ sensitive digestive organs and helps things get going ‘down there’ in a gentle way.
  • Iron: has high levels of iron, which is especially important for babies around 6 months of age as their iron reserves start to diminish. Quinoa is a natural way to boost their reserves without using iron-fortified products.
  • Magnesium: aids in bone and teeth growth.
  • Lysine: contains a good amount of lysine, which helps with tissue growth and repair. A must-have for babies as they learn to crawl, walk and run.
