Chia seed pudding is a great on-the-go breakfast option for busy families. Not only is it quick and simple to prepare ahead of time, but chia seeds also provide fibre (for happy tummies), iron and omega-3 fatty acids. When made with fortified milk, this chia pudding is also rich in calcium. When increasing a child’s fibre intake it is recommended to do so slowly over time alongside plenty of water.
