Risotto

“Roll up your sleeves”

The TumsUp Wild Rissotto includes significant amounts of protein, vitamins and minerals and Omeg-3 fatty acids.

These fatty acids are essential for many biological functions including brain development and optimal immune function.  These fatty acids mediate an antiflammatory role in the body and because post-industrial food production has lead to much greater amounts of pro inflammatory Omega-6 fats in the diet, meals high in Omega-3 are important. The high Omega-3 content of this meal suggests it is a great idea to included it at least once per week for a child. From our Dietician James Bray.

Meal Information

In just one serve of the TumsUp Wild Rissotto, a child can obtain 100% the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) for Marine Long Chain Omega-3 Fatty Acids and 55% the RDI for Iodine. Omega-3 is essential for many biological functions including brain development and optimal immune function.  They mediate an anti-inflammatory role in the body and because post-industrial food production has lead to much greater consumption of pro inflammatory Omega-6 fats in the diet, meals high in Omega-3 are very important.

The Iodine content of this meal is an important nutritional quality. Australian and New Zealand soils are generally depleted of iodine therefore without food fortification or intentional consumption of iodine rich foods, iodine deficiency in these populations is common. Iodine is essential for thyroid hormones, metabolism and for normal growth and development. This meal provides an important contribution to meeting a child’s recommended daily intake.  The high Omega-3 and iodine content of this meal suggests it is a great idea to included it at least once per week for a child.

This meal also provides good amounts of Selenium for detoxification, Iron for blood formation and oxygen delivery, and Zinc for structural integrity of cells and immune function.

The meal provides good amounts of Selenium which is an essential element for the main detoxification pathway in the human body.
