Benefits of Grapes for Kids:
- Grapes have high water content and help hydrate your kid. They also help regularize his bowel movement.
- Another amazing thing about grapes is that they are anti-inflammatory, and hence they alleviate the symptoms of allergy like watery eyes and running nose. As long your kid eats a balanced diet, it isn’t necessary to monitor his calorie count. Grapes add a decent amount of calories to the diet and are full of vitamins, Potassium, and Calcium.
- Vitamin C:
Vitamin C is a critical nutrient for your kid and important to contribute towards the growth of tissues.
Sodium works with Potassium to control the body’s water balance, which in turn helps in maintaining a healthy blood pressure. It also reduces the risk of kidney stones.
Apart from Potassium and Vitamin C, the wonder fruit is an excellent source of calcium. Calcium is required for the kid’s tooth and bone growth.
