Healthy Baby Recipe ~ Portobello Mushroom Burger

This burger is great for older toddlers; fresh portobello mushrooms, lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, with some good quality ketchup and mustard. Then I cut the burger into 4 pieces for little hands :)

Portobello mushrooms are incredibly healthy and loaded with vitamins and minerals. Just one portobello mushroom contains the following:
• fiber
• supplies 31 percent of the daily recommended intake of selenium
• contains 30 percent of the recommendation for copper and 18 percent of the requirement for both phosphorus and potassium
• Other minerals in portabello mushrooms include iron, magnesium, manganese, calcium and zinc
• 7.2 mg of the vitamin niacin, or 36 percent of the daily recommended intake
• 0.6 mg of riboflavin, or 34 percent of the recommended intake
• contain the vitamins pantothenic acid, folate, choline, vitamin B6 and thiamin, also known as vitamin B1
• betaine is also found in portabello mushrooms
