Key Health Benefits
Gut Health: Chickpeas are an excellent source of fiber, which helps to maintain normal bowel function and may alleviate constipation. Onions contain a prebiotic fiber called inulin. Inulin and fibers in chickpeas work together to help increase healthy bacteria in the intestines.
Immunity: Yams, chickpeas, onions, and cilantro contain compounds (saponins, quercetin, and dodnecal) that are strong antioxidants, and have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Chickpeas also contain zinc, which is a vital nutrient to help multiple aspects of the immune system.
Brain: Chickpeas contain iron, folate, zinc, and copper, which are all important nutrients for your baby’s brain development.
