Now your baby (and you) knows how to call family members and how to name body parts in Chinese. How about vegetables and fruits?

From today, I am starting a new lesson series: Lesson 3-Vegetables & Fruits.

Needless to say, vegetables and fruits are critically beneficial for your health. For nearly a century, vegetables and fruits have been recognized as the natural sources of many essential vitamins, minerals, fiber and other natural substances that may help protect you from chronic diseases.

Research of the past 20 years has shown that vegetables and fruits help prevent heart disease, strokes, and diverticulosis, control blood pressure, prevent some types of cancers, and guard against cataract and macular degeneration or vision loss.

They have been especially valuable for their ability to prevent vitamin C and vitamin A deficiencies. The USDA and National Institutes of Health suggest a minimum of five servings per day of fruits and vegetables combined.

Vegetables and fruits come in terrific colors and flavors. Eating vegetables and fruits of different colors gives your body a broad range of valuable nutrients. The phrase “eating a rainbow” of fruits and vegetables is a simple way of remembering to get as much color variety in your diet as possible.

Our lesson series on vegetables and fruits include those most commonly seen in our daily life. Today, I am going to teach you to say asparagus, avocado, apple, and apricot in Chinese.

Asparagus is known for its innumerable health benefits. It contains high concentration of vitamins A, C and E, potassium, and is an excellent source of folic acid. Moreover, calcium, iron, iodine, magnesium, selenium, zinc, phosphorous and B vitamins are also well supplied in asparagus. Do you want to try a recipe of chicken pot pie with fresh asparagus (for children of 12 months +).
