Q. Why are we always trying to make our kids EAT their veggies?
A. We want them to have a balanced diet and veggies are a large part of that.
Solution: Why not make veggie smoothies that your kids will crave?
Alexa does not hide veggies, she makes them into smoothies. Kids love smoothies when the texture, color, taste, and name are appealing. “Bunny Blues” for a smoothie that contains blueberries and carrots or an orange color smoothie called “The Tiger Energy Smoothie” are two favorites. You can use your child’s name or their favorite cartoon character’s name for a fun way to entice them to drink up.
Fill the smoothie with veggies, enough fruit to sweeten, and served in an appealing cup with a fun name! No added sugar!
Remember: The smoothie has to taste good and look good. See Alexa’s article, How to Make Veggie Smoothies Your Kids Will Love, for directions, serving sizes, and lots more help.
