Healthy fats play a very important role in every child’s growth. Unlike to adults, a low-fat diet can really affect toddlers’ growth negatively (both physically and mentally). Research has shown that attention deficit and eye disease in children are caused by their low level of essential fatty acids such as Omega 3. Don’t get me wrong! I am not telling you to go and feed your tots a lot of fried food (fried in processed oil) or mayonnaise. These are not the types of fats that I am talking about. I’m talking about healthy nutrients rich fats in seeds, nuts, avocado, cold pressed organic vegetable oils, fish, liver and so on. I am talking about foods that are rich in Omega (3,6,9), essential minerals and vitamins. I am talking about this seed crackers recipe.
This crunchy seed crackers recipe includes four very powerful and healthy seeds: flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds. Among all else, these seeds are packed with healthy fats, fiber and iron. They are also very nutrient dense that a small serving will provide your little ones with more goodness than you think it does. So you should definitely start incorporate some seeds into your toddler’s diet. You can begin with this seed crackers recipe.
You do not need to stick with only the seeds I am using in this recipe. You can play around with other seeds too. Just make sure you soak the seeds before using them. Soaking will help break them down, hence make it easier for our body to digest and absorb nutrients. It also helps bring out a more delicious buttery taste.
This is a great healthy snack option for your tots (and you). You can serve it at breakfast with some fruits and dipping sauce or in your tots’ lunch box along side other stuff. They are also extremely convenient when you are on the go and in need for some healthy bites to munch on. These are delightful, crunchy with some nutty, buttery flavor and toddler-approved. You will find yourself eating one after another without wanting to stop. Yes, that’s how delicious they are. Don’t worry; I have seen it happen many times so I make sure this seed crackers recipe yields enough cracker for both you and your little one to enjoy for a few days. Have fun cooking!
