Healthy Toddler and Kids Smoothies 

Print Friendly 

Description:
One of the best ways to help your toddler and older kids eat more fruits and vegetables is to pack them into smoothies. By starting with one master smoothie recipe and varying it based on what your kids like (and for any food allergy concerns), you can increase the likelihood that they will actually drink it—which is clearly key! This recipe is flexible and versatile. I don’t know about your kids, but mine get so excited when I give them a smoothie! and I know I’m feeding them something really nutritious. You can pack so many healthy foods into a smoothie (fruit, veggies, seeds, yogurt).

Ingredients:
There’s one master recipe here, but you can pick which fruits and veggies to use so you can customize it for your child.

Generally you’ll need:

Milk (I prefer non-dairy)
Fruit
Veggie
Frozen banana
Optional add-ins

TIP: I like to do half frozen fruit and half fresh fruit to avoid having a smoothie that’s a nice and easy thickness for toddlers to drink. I like to add in some spinach but a little to start.


Directions:
Add the milk to the blender. (We prefer nondairy milks since they seem to have a slightly better consistency and less of a tendency to separate after blending.)
Add the fruit and veggie.
Add any optional ingredients.
Blend the smoothie really well to ensure that it has a very creamy texture.
Serve it in a reusable pouch, a small open cup, or in a sippy cup depending on what your kid likes best.

Wellness Tip
What Affects Iron Absorption?
Iron supplementation can be beneficial for some people who are at risk of deficiency such as pregnant women, female athletes or women with heavy menstrual cycles. To get the most out of iron supplements, avoid taking them with coffee, tea or milk. These beverages contain substances that can inhibit the absorption of iron. Wait 90 minutes or more to drink coffee, tea or milk, after taking iron. Vitamin C and meat proteins can improve iron absorption. Check with your physician before adding an iron supplement to your diet.
