Oats is a simple, ancient, clean and healthy grain that comes with a ton of health benefits, in addition, it’s one of few foods that keep it’s health benefits since it’s not overly processed. To list a few of it’s positive traits, these are our favorite ones:

  1. Provides nourishment to babies with gluten allergy: Babies allergic to gluten cannot consume grains like wheat, rye, and barley that provide essential nutrition. But they can eat oats, which are gluten-free and have the same vitamins and minerals the essential grains do. Oats helps improve the nutritional value of a gluten-free diet that can lead to nutritional deficiencies in babies

  2. A natural vitamin and mineral bomb: Oats are naturally high in essential vitamins and minerals such as iron, magnesium and phosphorus

  3. Oats are good at easing constipation: Oats are rich in fiber, which means they help tackle constipation which can be a huge problem for many children and young babies

  4. Good for immunity: Oats contain a type of sugar (I know, it’s crazy, but not all sugars are bad!!) called beta-glucans that boosts the production of immune system cells in the gut

  5. Helps reduce inflammation: Oats contains avenanthramides that can help reduce and prevent inflammation and lower blood pressure

  6. Long-lasting feel: Oats tend to swell for a long time after consumption which will allow a content and filled feeling. This, for little humans, often means full nights of sleep if consumed before bedtime

  7. May help reduce risk of childhood asthma: Some research suggests that oats may help prevent asthma in children when fed to young infants
