•Health Benefits of Zucchini for Babies
-Eating the skin is how baby will get all those vitamins and nutrition.
1. Calcium Content
Courgette or zucchini contains calcium which is needed for bone development and teeth of a child. It also plays a part in transporting the nutrients within the body.
2. A Lot of Magnesium
Magnesium also plays an equally important role in the development of bones, gums, and teeth of a child. It also aids in digestion, as it triggers the enzymes needed for digestion and controls the urinary bladder.
3. Phosphorous Supply
Zucchinis contain a whole lot of phosphorous, which plays a part in facilitating a number of bodily functions. Numbness and fatigue are combated by this mineral, and it also plays a part in the development of the brain.
4. Helps the Immune System
Zucchinis contain Vitamin C, which is important for the development of the child. The development of immune system depends on the amount of Vitamin C available to the body, as it is necessary for the production of mucus and other bodily fluids.
5. Vitamin B
The B complex vitamins are made up of Vitamin B-6, niacin, thiamine, folate, and a few other vitamins. These are necessary for metabolic activities, the functioning of the immune system, production of energy and to produce RBCs in the body.
Even though zucchinis contain a lot of vitamins and minerals, these are easily digested by the stomach of the baby. It is mainly made up of water and is rich in fibre content. If your child ever suffers from any digestive problem, zucchinis can prove to be one of the best remedies.
•Health Benefits of Chickpeas for Babies
1. Proper growth and development
Chickpeas have a good amount of quality protein that could help in the growth and development of the baby. Protein is an essential nutrient to perform various physiological functions, including muscle development and enzyme formation.
2. Promote brain development
Chickpeas are a good source of essential fatty acids like linoleic and oleic acid. These fatty acids are important to promote brain development, improve cognitive functions, and increase the body’s repairing ability.These processes are essential for babies, especially during the early years of life.
3. Helps in anemia prevention
Babies are prone to anemia during the first year of life. Therefore, regular consumption of iron-rich foods is a must. One cup of chickpeas can provide almost 50 percent of the daily requirement of iron. However, the iron bio-availability from chickpeas is low. It means the baby will have to consume more of chickpeas, or it must be supplemented with other iron-rich foods such as spinach.
4. Supports bone and teeth development
Calcium is one of the essential minerals that support bone and teeth development in babies. Chickpeas are considered to be a good source of calcium that could potentially contribute to the daily requirement of calcium.
