Don’t worry, you are not the only one having this issue.
Based on a recent study, more than 50% of young children avoid their greens and here is a tip on how to sneak those nutritious greens into their diet.
SUPER GREEN SMOOTHIES
Did you know that a green smoothie made with kale, apples, berries tastes awesome and is exploding with a variety of essential minerals and nutrients for the growing body and mind?
100 grams of kale in your smoothie will provide :
300% dv of vitamin A, 200% dv Vitamin C, 16% dv Vitamin B6, 1000% dv vitamin K and many others.
The loads of beneficial fibre that will also help kids during poo time .
Smoothies are also great way to incorporate new flavors that may otherwise be tricky to serve. Add some things your kids might not try with regular meals, like lettuce, brocolli; when mixed with sweet pineapple juice would make it a delicious and healthy snack for your kids.
Green smoothies are also low in GI which means your kids would not experience the feared sugar rush!
Children need the right nutrients to help them grow. Since smoothies incorporate a variety of naturally-occurring vitamins and minerals, it helps get those little bodies exactly what they need from real food. They’ll also get a helping of healthy fats, protein, and fiber — three things most multivitamin tablets can’t provide.
