Organic Tots and Moms The best calcium-rich food for developing bones and a good gut is jaggery. Its iron content aids in increased haemoglobin production and thus energy, making it a healthier replacement for white sugar, particularly during the early stages of childhood when flavour stimulates appetite. Jaggery is also very gentle on the stomach, making it suitable for both adults and children. Although it helps women with menstrual cramps, it also helps children develop high immunity which is beneficial to the entire family. Simply sprinkle it over some kind of food when it's cooking and eat.
