Kids eat SPINACH for Breakfast – try our Kids Breakfast Smoothie!
Believe it, strange as it sounds, with our delicious kids breakfast smoothie your kids will eat spinach too!
Children are fearful of the colour green in food. We all know why but we can break the myth for them. This kids breakfast smoothie tastes delicious and sweet yet it’s so good for you.
- The best thing to do when first introducing it to your little people, is to whip it up in private without them watch.
- Next, stir up and excite your kids by tempting them with a blindfold adventure.
- Pop the blindfolds on your children. Whatever you do make sure they can’t peep.
- Then lead them into the kitchen and give them a thick straw.
- Lastly passinto their hands just a third of a little glass and let them drink it.
Fingers crossed they love it!
You may be best having them finish the smoothie and then leading them out of the kitchen to remove the blindfold. Just for a couple of days until they really are committed to loving the taste. Once you feel they are ready, show them the smoothie and all the ingredients that go into it.
They will be amazed at the colour and quite fascinated. You can even tell them it’s good for you. The next step will be getting them to gather the ingredients and help you pop them in the blender.
If you are thinking school mornings are already a nightmare and too crazy to try the kids breakfast smoothie out as well, then try it out on Sundays to start with.
