This gorgeous pudding is packed with healthy fats, including omega 3 fatty acids, as well as fibre, potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron and oodles of vitamin C and B6, and will keep blood sugar levels nice and steady.

BANANAS are a great source of easily digestible fibre. They are loaded with anti-oxidants and are an excellent source of potassium – research has shown that many children with autism can be low in potassium and that by adding potassium into the diet there can be significant improvement in sensory processing. Bananas can also help increase serotonin levels – this is our feel good neurotransmitter. Bananas also contain mega amounts of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) which is required for GABA (an inhibitory neurotransmitter) hormone production within our brain – this can be really helpful for children who tend towards hyperactivity. Besides having more than 20 different vitamins and minerals. COCONUT MILK has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties and contains medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) that are easily digested and readily cross cell membranes. MCFAs are immediately converted by our liver into energy rather than being stored as fat. COCONUT YOGHURT is loaded with probiotics, helping support a healthy gut.
