  • Cocoa, a key ingredient in many desserts, may surprise you with its potential health benefits! Cacao nibs and unsweetened cocoa powder contain flavonoids, antioxidants that may help prevent heart disease and stroke
  • Oats can vary in the amount of iron they contain, as some are fortified and some aren’t. Check the label to be sure, because there is quite a difference: unfortified oats provide about 2.5 mg of iron per 3/4 cup while the fortified ones have 6.5 mg of iron
