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.
One of the best things you can do as a parent is to feed your child (and yourself!) a solid, energy packed, nutritional breakfast.
But if your mornings are anything like mine, you are rushing around making lunches, packing snacks, picking out clothing, signing papers that didn’t get signed the night before, breaking up a sibling fight or two, feeding the dog, and actually getting dressed yourself because you simply cannot take your kids to school AGAIN in your robe! (Hey – we don’t have to get out of the car, right??)
So what CAN you do to beef up the nutritional content of your and your children’s breakfasts?
