15 Easy & Delicious Smoothies that even picky eating kids will love!
One of the most frequently used electrical items in my kitchen is my blender and a lot of the time it’s used for making smoothies.
One of the reasons I love smoothies so much is that they are so versatile.
Not only are they a fantastic way of packing in loads of healthy and nutritious fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and even grains (that they might otherwise refuse if served on a plate!) into your child’s diet, they are easy and quick to put together which is always a plus when you have a busy family lifestyle.
Add to this the fact that the flavour and ingredient combinations are pretty much infinite and generally adaptable depending on your tastes and dietary requirements, they really are a brilliant, quick and easy breakfast for when you are running short on time or can also be served as a healthy snack.
Like I said, the flavour combinations are pretty much endless but with kid’s in mind, I’ve put together my favourite 15 kid-approved smoothies for you!
