I recently bought my first bag of Chia seeds seeing them at a local grocery store. I don't know too too much about them but their nutritional profile intrigued me. One ounce contains 137 calories, 9g of fat, 11g of fiber, 4g of protein. I'm no expert but that's seems pretty ideal for baby. Especially considering the fat it contains is an Omega 3 Fatty Acid.
I first tried them by sprinkling on homemade french toast. Both kids didn't even notice. Happily eating their boosted breakfast.
Then I added them to a smoothie (this one to be exact) and it thickened it to fun shake consistency.
That's when the baby caught a glimpse.
Side note: He was not only eating them but I also give him a little smoothie mixed with his whole milk. So he was drinking chia, spinach, bananas and blueberries. I sneaky like that. 😉
Anyway, how can I say no to a face like this?
So I put some on his tray.
He played, of course, but more importantly he ate. Or at least tried to eat. Those are small little buggers!
In the end I don't think it's about how much he consumed.
And had FUN!
Was there a mess?
But he got to experience a completely new texture.
Totally worth it for that and this face alone…
