Looking for a finger food for your little one that is both tasty and nutritious? Pomegranates are a great alternative to common snacks, such as Cheerios, that caregivers often place in front of their babies at mealtime. Not only are they delicious, they also have many nutritional and developmental benefits.
“Pom poms”, as my 12 month old son refers to them as, are often labeled as a superfood. They are jam packed with vitamin C, potassium, folic acid, and fiber. Pomegranates are also a great source of antioxidants which are responsible for protecting the body from the harmful effects of free radicals.
