Every responsible parent knows how important are fruits and veggies in a child’s diet but also, quite often, has to deal with the caprices of the little one. Convincing our loved ones to take a sip of some fresh and healthy foods can be challenging but equally rewarding. Smoothies are an ideal way to persuade your children into loving fruits, vegetables and other nutritive and stimulating ingredients. To make sure you get the best results, transform the process in a game: allow you kid to pick up his own ingredients and eventually even mix them in the blander, under your careful watch, of course. Not only he will enjoy the responsibilities but also he will be more than happy to serve something he prepared.
In the following post, you can find inspiration studying some delicious, smoothies for kids recipes.
