Health Benefits of Chocolate to a Toddler

Kai never fails to spot a Celebrate chocolate truffle in our pantry. His reflexes are quick and focused: Get it now with no delay! This time it worked again. Look at this picture below.

He is too little to know the benefits of a real dark chocolate: like being full of antioxidants and flavonoids to protect heart and arteries, by reducing a bad LDL cholesterol.

You'd utter, "What about Fat in chocolate?" Well, the oleic acid in dark chocolate is actually a heart-healthy monounsaturated fat that has been shown to lower blood levels of bad cholesterol.

Reach out for dark types of chocolate to rip the benefits of Chocolate. The majority of brands use wax and additives in their chocolate products. So, when you buy dark chocolate, read ingredients on the back!

As far as Kai, he eats dark chocolate every day. Yes, that's the truth. And I love watching my baby getting "chocolatty" whenever he enjoys his treat.

To Your Health!
