Let’s Familiarize Ourselves with Food and Nutrition

Hello Prime Moms! We hope everyone is having a good summer. With the kids on break, we now have more time to learn new things that can help us in raising our children.

Whether you’re a new mom or have been a mom for quite a while now, learning and refreshing oneself about good food is a good thing.

So what nutrients should we be on the lookout for? Here are some of them as well as some of the food that have them.

Vitamin A

It is an antioxidant that promotes clearer vision, clearer skin, and also plays a role in the neurological function in the body. It also reduces inflammation and free radical damage.

Now that we are familiar with some of the essential nutrition that the body needs to function well. Let’s take a look at some ways that we can incorporate it to our food. Here are some healthy and delicious recipes that you can do at home!

We hope you have fun trying these recipes out!

Pesto Pea Pizza

Do your kids love pizza? Maybe it’s time to introduce them to this recipe! Topped with ricotta cheese, this particular recipe grills the pizza dough. Once the dough is grilled, you can put the toppings and put it back on the grill for around 2-3 minutes.

If you’re using canned peas, you may place them last since they are already cooked and heat them for a couple of seconds.
