Learn how to use chia seeds, what nutritional benefits they have, and the best ways to offer chia seeds for kids.
How to Use Chia Seeds
They are a great source of healthy fats and they can be helpful in binding recipes together—which is why they are commonly used as a vegan egg replacer and in no-cook puddings.
Chia Seeds for Kids
I love using chia seeds in recipes—especially ones that lack calcium and fiber. Because of the way they gel liquids, they could be a texture challenge for some kids.
Chia Seeds for Babies
The seed can be offered after babies start solids. Because of how much fiber they contain, start with a smaller amount to allow baby’s system to adjust.
How to Store
Store chia seeds in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. Unless the package directs you to store them in the fridge or freezer, you can store them at room temperature.
