It has been said that giving the right nutrition for kids does not just begin on the dining table. Giving them the right nutrition starts from the moment you think of what you would prepare for them. But contrary to the supposed tedious process of boiling and simmering, sometimes it is even harder to determine the cleanliness of one's fresh produce.
Lactum 3+/6+ listed down some reminders to remember when cleaning fruits and veggies:
1. Remember to Wash Your Hands. Sometimes, just because we think that we are about to clean something dirty or soiled, it doesn't mean that our own hands are not free from bacteria. So before you even touch that cabbage or carrot, wash your hands.
2. Never Use Any Chemicals. Giving the right nutrition for kids certainly makes moms really meticulous—to the point of doing everything for the sake of safety and cleanliness. But mommy, never go overboard and use soap dishes for your veggies!
3. Be Patient. There are some veggies that do need your extra effort. Like potatoes or turnips, root vegetables need to be brushed to remove the dirt covering them up. You can use an ordinary toothbrush for this. Be gentle with the vegetable to avoid any bruising on its meat.
And of course, every nutritious veggie meal should also come with a nutritious drink!
