Health Benefits of Blueberries

Posted by on May 1, 2014 in Nutrition | Comments Off on Health Benefits of Blueberries

My daughter is obsessed with blueberries – seriously! She’s a year and a half years old, and she will ask for blueberries whenever she is hungry! She’ll point to the fridge and say, “Blue!? Blue!?” It is seriously the cutest thing ever! :) I was starting to be a little concerned about her blueberry obsession, but really, her favorite food is extremely healthy, and it could be worse. Of course, I limit the amount I give her because like anything – too much of a good thing can be bad (if you change diapers…you know what I’m talkin’ about). I loved this helpful infographic showing just how amazing blueberries are for your health!
