Apple, Pear, Apricot and Cinnamon snack for babies

By Sharda ten Hove on 27 November 2013

This fruity snack is best to give as a late morning snack because it is an energy booster. Easy and quick to prepare and super yummy both warm and cold.

Apples are real superfood balls. These tasty colorful globes are an excellent source of antioxidants, fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Pears have about the same quantity of goodness as apples and apricot is high in beta-carotene which is super important for the development of your babies heart.
Another vitamin in apricot is vitamin A which is good for eye sight.
Cinnamon also belongs to the group of Superfoods as cinnamon has numerous different properties that are beneficial for anyone so also for your little one.
Cinnamon helps to regulate blood sugar, it has natural anti-infectious compounds and contains fiber, calcium, iron, and manganese. According to a study at the University of Texas, cinnamon also reduces chronic inflammation linked with a number of neurological disorders.

How to prepare this great snack?

Peel the apples and pears, remove the core and cut in thin slices.
Put water in pan on medium heat, add apples, pear, apricots and cinnamon stick and leave until the fruit has absorbed all the water.
Stick a fork in to feel whether the fruit is soft enough, if not add some more water.
Remove the cinnamon stick, put the mix in your blender and mix all.

You can store for later but best is to eat immediately after preparation since the food is then still full of Prana (the life force or cosmic force that inhibits everything that lives).

Have a happy snack day! ♥
