I have found so many yummy smoothie recipes that include vegetables. What a fun and easy way of increasing your child’s fruit AND vegetable intake! We’ve been having fun with smoothie tastings at health fairs and schools with our nutrition education project.
I had the opportunity to sample an amazing all-natural, raw fruit drink today called Sweet Heavens! Watermelon Juice from Brandi Rollins, author of Raw Foods on a Budget. It’s so good! You can find the recipe (basically, fresh watermelon and pineapple) at Brandi’s website. Juicing is a wonderful way to increase your and your child’s fruit and vegetable intake.
