Sometimes I wonder if other people get as much pleasure as I do from seeing their children eat healthy food. There is just something so reassuring about it, knowing that vitamins and nutrients are being flooded through their growing bodies.
Luckily, on these hot, summer August days, smoothies are a big hit in my home. My ‘go to’ smoothie for my kids contains almond milk, some frozen or fresh berries, and a bit of raw honey. Berries are high in fiber, potassium, and vitamins A and C. My kids love the taste and I love the nutrition.
Just recently I decided to take a chance by adding one more ingredient to their smoothies, hoping they wouldn’t notice. I anxiously gave them their smoothies and they sucked them down, as usual!
