Power Up Young Bodies with an Ancient Grain
Quinoa is the "it" grain these days and for good reason: It’s versatile, quick cooking (15 minutes!), nutty, and delicious.
It's one of the few plant foods that provide a complete protein, and it's also high in heart-healthy potassium, immune-boosting
zinc, and iron. Plus, it’s gluten-free.
Kids will love the tangy apricots and crunchy pistachios in this quinoa salad, which serves up 10 grams of protein and nearly 11 grams of fiber per serving. Because the grains are so small, they can be tough for little hands to pick up. Try wrapping this salad up in a small whole-grain tortilla or filling mini pitas with it.
