As we get closer to giving baby Addy jarred foods I have been researching more and more about what foods are going to be best for her. The benefits of Vitamin C in the development of a young child are numerous. Vitamin C is a vital nutrient for a growing baby because it is required for the growth and maintenance of healthy skin and red blood cells. In addition, it helps build collagen, which forms connective tissue that binds muscles, bones, and tissues together.
Earth’s Best fortifies many of its infant foods with Vitamin C. Earth’s Best 2nd Super Fruits jarred baby food contains 100% of the daily value for antioxidant Vitamins A & C and super fruits such as Acai, Yumberry and Cherries. 2nd Super Fruits three varieties include:
- Earth’s Best® Acai Grape Oatmeal Super Fruits: a combination of wholesome oatmeal, nutritious fruits and natural flavors. Acai is the fruit of palm trees that grow in the rainforests of the Amazon—trees Brazilians call “The Tree of Life.”
- Earth’s Best Organic® Cherry Pear Brown Rice Super Fruits: unique combination of wholesome brown rice, nutritious fruits, natural flavors and the distinctive red color of cherries.
- Earth’s Best Organic® Yumberry Banana Barley Super Fruits: combination of wholesome barley, nutritious fruits, and natural flavors. Yumberry, commonly known to the Chinese as “Yang Mei”, is a unique sweet fruit that is packed with powerful and beneficial nutrients that the Chinese have used as an integral part of their diet for over 5,000 years!
Furthermore, Vitamin C also helps the body absorb plant-derived or non-heme iron, a critical nutrient for red blood cell production and is necessary for wound healing and infection protection.
