Toddlers and Kids can be picky eaters and it can be tough to get good nutrition into them. My Tiny
Toddler loves smoothies though so we get creative sometimes! Here is our try with a Banana Spinach Smoothie with some extra goodies! Now if only someone would sell those smoothie packs as refillable so I can just make my own all the time!
~ 1-2 ripe bananas (or ones that you have frozen)
~ a handful of spinach leaves
~ about 1/2 cup frozen blueberries (frozen berries make it cold and icy without having to add ice)
~ any other fruit you if you want to add, fresh or frozen
~ half of a small yogurt, or more if you like
~ a dash of liquid, either milk (dairy or non-dairy) or any kind of juice
Tip: Blueberries, steamed baby carrots, Breyer’s vanilla ice cream, and almonds are all other options to include or substitute in. While red berries may seem like a good idea-and might taste good-they will turn the color a very unappetizing shade of brown)

I do these all the time with my toddler. We use vanilla breyers sometimes and almond milk as well as the blueberries, banana and spinach :)
