My Little Notes:

Quick Citrus Salad is suitable for babies one year and above. Once you know, they are not allergic to citrus fruits.

Citrus fruits are a good source of fiber, folate and vitamin C. Mandarines are beneficial for bone health and are filled with antioxidants.

Blood oranges, a close cousin of oranges have Anthocyanin, the red pigment that provides the blood orange’s distinctive coloration.

It may provide additional protection against cancer and heart disease. Anthocyanin, in particular, seems to help lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol levels and keep blood vessels flexible and strong.

Tangerines are the additional source of potassium, vitamin A and flavonoids which boost specific anticancer properties.

With so many advantages, making Quick Citrus Salad is a must for this citrus season. Give it a try soon.

Till we talk again, take care and enjoy the journey of cooking for your little ones.
