Nourishment Notes


Oats contain a unique antioxidant called avenanthramides. This type of antioxidant is especially beneficial for lowering inflammation in the body. In addition, some research indicates that early introduction of oats may decrease the likelihood of childhood asthma.


Walnuts are one of the few plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acids. These types of fats are important for reducing inflammation within the body.
