Give your baby a fiber-rich cereal with barley!
Barley is a grain that has been used in India traditionally, but eventually gave way to the more popular rice and wheat. However, the popularity of barley is back on the rise, as people realize what they’re missing out on! Now even babies can benefit from the nutrition of barley with Little Moppet Foods’ Organic Barley Cereal!
Barley is a very high fiber food with a fiber content that is almost thrice that of oatmeal. This helps babies have smooth bowel movements, without straining and discomfort. It also contains good amounts of calcium and potassium, ensuring strong bones for growing babies. Some studies have also shown that eating barley in infancy reduces the incidence of asthma in childhood. Barley contains gluten, so it is essential to ensure that your baby doesn’t have a gluten intolerance or celiac disease before feeding him barley.
Whole barley is not fit for human consumption and must be hulled before it can be used. For this reason, it’s best to avoid buying regular barley for your baby; instead opt for Little Moppet Foods’ Organic Barley Cereal which is specially made for infants. It uses only 100% organic barley, grown without chemical fertilizers or pesticides, ensuring only nutritional goodness for your baby.
