Is it safe to include chia seeds in my Blast while pregnant?

Hello, I am a newbie here and I have a few questions... I am currently 20 weeks pregnant and I have a two year old baby. I first want to know if it's safe for me to include chia seeds in my blasts. Also, are chia seeds safe to include in blasts for my two year old?

Absolutely! Chia seeds provide great nutrients to both you and your baby.

I have not heard anything against feeling a toddler chia seeds. Just a few things to note: make sure to start off slow and keep an eye out for any signs of allergies (chia is not a major allergen) or digestive issues (diarrhea/constipation/etc).

Blending chia gel with some banana would probably be a big hit with the little one! Remember chia thickens as it sits in liquid so just be mindful of the texture of your child's food. If he/she likes pudding, then chia pudding is a great option for some added fiber and omega-3s :)
