how to eat almonds?
There are many ways Almond nut can be consumed by a child. Kids love to eat chocolate. Roasting almonds and dipping them in chocolate makes a great snack for kids to eat any time during the day. And it also takes away the urge to eat something chocolatey or sweet. Almonds can also be made into a butter for spreading on bread. Or grind into a flour to be used to make cookies or added to cake batter. Roasted almond powder can also be added to hot or cold porridge. Roasting Almonds do not impact the nutrition value of the nut.
Kids who are picky eaters usually tend to miss on their daily nutrition. Just a minor tweak of adding Almonds to their daily diet can help them meet daily requirement of several vitamins and minerals. Almonds have high quality of calories which not only adds nutrition but also helps in managing weight of a child. They tend to make the child feel fuller faster than other foods resulting in reduced urge to consume comfort-food or over-eat meals.
