Baby spinach is great raw in salads and as good for you as its older self
Spinach contains an acid (oxalic) that inhibits the absorption of the iron and calcium contained in the leaf. However the vitamin C also contained in the leaf counters this effect, therefore cook as little as possible to maximise the vitamin C content.
If you are eating this raw always eat with some fat such as a salad dressing to enhance the absorption of the goodness which in this leaf is mainly fat soluble.
