Advice from Dr. Sarah Schenker on Basmati for kids

Kids tend to be non-stop, from waking up until bedtime. That’s why it is so important for children to have a healthy and nutritious diet, filled with carbohydrates, protein and fibre to meet their daily needs. Basmati rice is a great source of the resources needed for energy and growth and contains many important vitamins and minerals that are vital to good health.

Rice is often one of the first grains offered to babies when they start to wean. It’s easily digestible and free from gluten, making it the perfect choice for sensitive tummies.

Convincing your little one to eat their green isn’t always the easiest task. Luckily, the Tilda Kids range contains fruit and vegetables with each pack providing 1 of their 5 a day in a truly tasty way. The range also features Wholegrain packs which provide a great source of additional fibre, vitamins and minerals.

Check out our Kids recipes section for great ideas on how to use the range to create balanced meals, that will support good health and wellbeing, as well as proving popular with your little ones’ taste buds.
