Are you sick of chicken nuggets and buttery noodles, yet?
I know how hard it is to work, try to plan a healthy meal, go to the store, spend your hard-earned dollars and serve it to a picky toddler who says ‘Eww’ the minute they see it. Parenting is hard work, and making sure your kids are eating healthy food can be challenging and time-consuming.
I’m still coming up with new ideas to get kids to eat healthy food (willingly!) but until then, serve them some of our delicious smoothies. They won’t even know that they are getting 1/2 their daily allowance of fruits, vegetables, and even calcium!
I’m not a nutritionist or a pediatrician. I’m just a mom who tries to make healthy food that my four year old daughter and my veggie-averse husband will actually eat. (My daughter is actually much better in this department!) Smoothies are such an easy way to get a few extra servings of fruits and veggies in, and the options are literally endless. I’ll hope you’ll join me as we try to expose our kids (& husbands?!) to as many fruits & vegetables as possible! They are bound to like something.
A NOTE TO PARENTS
If you’ve come here feeling discouraged because it can be really hard to get your kids to eat healthy food, please don’t be. Every month, there are 20,000 other parents reading this website trying to add more fruits & veggies to their own child’s diet. You are not alone & you can do this!
