Dealing with a Picky eater?

This has been an ongoing battle for parents all over. If you never dealt with a picky eater than consider yourself lucky. Every child fuses about food at some point or another but it is something that most eventually overcome. When you have a picky eater, how do you ensure they are getting the proper nutrients they need without a fight? I make smoothies that give them their daily servings of both fruits and vegetables. This smoothie is both healthy and yummy and can be made to your child’s liking. It can be used for all three meals especially if your child doesn’t like vegetables or fruits and it can be used as a meal replacement.

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup Frozen or fresh berries (I use strawberries. Blueberries, raspberries etc., but you can also just use frozen bananas, peaches, mangoes, etc. – pretty much any combination of berries or fruits that you like.
  • 1/2 of vegetables (such as spinach ,kale or carrots , more than one vegetable can be use depending on your child)
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Soy Milk, almond milk : make sure it’s unsweetened , I sometimes use a little bit raw honey to taste if fruits are not fully ripped (optional)

Directions

Put the fruits, vegetables in a blender (if you have a ninja or nutri bullet it will work as well)

Note: If you don’t like Soy Milk you can use regular milk or even a little a bit of water. Using regular organic 1% milk makes this drink even sweeter and tastes just like a milkshake!

From my kitchen to yours, enjoy!
