The presence of essential amino acids in quantities higher than the common cereals (wheat, spelled, barley, rye, wheat khorasankamut), minerals and vitamins ensures a wealth of nutrients useful for a growing body like that of children and adolescents.

Not only. Quinoa is easily digestible. Simply enjoyed with extra virgin olive oil and steamed vegetables, it will also satisfy the nutritional needs of the elderly and convalescents.
