Coconut water can be used as a healthy alternative to fruit juice or sugary drinks, and is a rich source of potassium and vitamin C. Pineapples contain high amounts of vitamin C which is excellent at revitalising your immune system. Blueberries are considered a ‘super food’ and contain plenty of fibre, vitamin A and vitamin C.
Honey is not recommended for infants under 1 year of age as it contains a bacteria which can cause Infant Botulism. But as a natural sweetener it is perfect to give to older kids.
