There are many people who love raw spinach -- in salads or on sandwiches. However, after last year's spinach E.coli scare some have dropped spinach altogether. spinach-a.jpgIf spinach gives you the shivers you can still eat it; just cook it.

Spinach is healthy for hard working mamas and growing littles; it's one of the best food sources for beta carotene and also has Vitamin Bc (Folate), Vitamin K, and many more healthy nutrients. You can mash it up for younger babies and serve it soft for toddlers. Try this cooked spinach recipe -- proof that cooked spinach can look and taste great. One more tip is to sneak it into foods you already eat. I put spinach in enchiladas and you can barely tell. Where else could you sneak it in?
