I added 2-3 tablespoons of boiled and ground chickpea to her breakfast oats today. Chickpeas are the 11th ingredient my daughter has been introduced to.
Chickpeas are known for their high-protein content that will help develop baby’s growing muscles and also aid the development of an infant’s internal organs. It also a has a small percentage of unsaturated fats that are good for brain development, eye sight and neuro-transmission. It also reduces the risk of anemia and promotes healthy bone development in babies due to its high iron and mineral content.
Chickpea is also an excellent source of fiber and is therefore helpful in eliminating constipation. And some of this fiber is not digestible even in the large intestine. This indigestible fiber is consumed by friendly bacteria residing there and, in turn, help in regenerating the cell walls of the intestine.
