Smoothies for Kids - a no brainer!
Click here to go straight to our recipes It's just crazy not to make smoothies for kids, in fact it's a no brainer! Every child loves a smoothie and it's such a great way to get them to take fruit and vegetables at which they might otherwise turn their noses up. Ask a child if they would prefer to eat an orange or drink an orange smoothie?
Kids nutritional needsChildren need a balanced diet - this means giving them a good mix of protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and fibre. Fruit and vegetables should form a large part of their diet and smoothies can help as they can even disguise fruits and vegetables that children might dislike. Proteins - for growing muscles, skin and hair
Carbohydrates - for energy
Fat - for energy and vitamins
Vitmains - for digestion, healing and growing
Minerals - for building strong bones
Fibre - for a healthy digestive system
Offer waterIt's all too easy with today's life style to forgot how valuable a simple glass of water is. Water cleans away toxins and waste products while keeping the kidney filters going, with the added bonus that it is cheap.
