Tiny Toddler Fruit Salad



Tiny Toddler Fruit Salad - 10 Months+
Ingredients:
  • 1 mango (for a video on mango cutting click HERE)
  • 2 kiwi
  • 1 Clementine 
  • pinch nutmeg (optional)

    Simply peel & slice the fruit into tiny cubes/ pieces.  About ¼ of the size you would cut it for regular fruit salad.  Mix all the the fruit cubes and nutmeg together.  You can serve this in small bowl and let your toddler work on feeding themselves with a spoon.  You may need to help them.  This mix is great with other tropical fruits like papaya as well.  This recipe will keep for either 3 days in the refrigerator or 3 month in the freezer. 

Some of the Awesome Health Benefits:
-Mangoes are one of the best sources of beta-carotene, quercetin and astragalin. These are powerful antioxidants helping to prevent heart disease, cancer, premature aging and degenerative diseases.
-Kiwi fruits are rich in many Vitamins, flavonoids and minerals. In particular, they contain a high amount of Vitamin C (more than oranges), as much potassium as bananas and a good amount of beta-carotene.
-Clementine's are a great nutritional source of Vitamin C, fiber, folate, and potassium
