Getting kids to eat healthy food can be an epic battle for parents. Most children, especially young ones, are supremely picky eaters. To add insult to injury, many of the foods they gravitate toward—chicken nuggets, crackers, mac & cheese—are devoid of nutritional value. Add in the marketing of unhealthy food to kids, busy parents who reach for pre-packaged food for convenience (I’m guilty!), and the sad state of school lunches, keeping our children well-feed can be a major challenge.
Enter the smoothie. Quick, easy, and delicious, smoothies can be a god-send for parents wanting better nutritional choices for their kids. Smoothies made a great breakfast, lunch, or snack, and can be put in a bottle for a meal on-the-go.
