The Lonely Sweet Pea

Very rarely do kids get heaping helpings of peas on a regular basis. Providing more than 50 percent of the recommended daily amount of vitamin K and packed with vitamin Bs and C, folate, iron, zinc, manganese, and protein, peas are a great choice for any child's diet. Promoting brain health, bone strength, heart health, and disease-fighting protection, these sweet green morsels are worth their weight in health!
