Green Smoothies Help Kids Eat Healthy
Getting kids to eat more fruits and vegetables can be a challenge. Making time for healthy eating when you are rushing out the door to school, work, or practice compounds that problem. That’s why green smoothies are perfect for busy families. They can be created quickly, are great on the go, and make adding more fruits and veggies into your diet easy.
In order to make your smoothie experience easier, we have a few things that are going to help get your kids to eat healthier: a new green smoothie recipe that even the kids will want to try and information about a great healthy school initiative.
Back to School for Better Health
August/September means it’s back to school time. Mornings get really busy. When you’re in a hurry, a green smoothie takes fresh fruits and veggies and creates a quick nutritious breakfast or anytime snack.
