Buckinis alkalise the body and are a rich source of protein and manganese. Almonds also play an important role in our health as they are a source of calcium and contain healthy fats, fibre, protein, magnesium and vitamin E. Coconut is highly nutritious and rich in fibre. It is good for little stomachs and is also a good source of calcium for strong bones.
