We have Smoothie "appetizers" before our meals to ensure our kids get the proper nutrients from vegetables they don't want to eat.
This is one of my families favorite smoothies!!
1/2 the bag of that yo plait triple berry smoothie,
1 cup of spinach,
1 scoop of whey protein,
1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 Tablespoon of milled Flax seed
Blend and enjoy or pour in popsicle molds and freeze!
My 3yr old begged me for this this morning so this was his Bfast and then I poured the rest in Popsicle molds for all my kids after school. Yes, the "appetizer" can even be in the form of a popsicle. Teach your children the nutrition facts and model a healthy lifestyle. Small changes like this will help your weight loss efforts, lead to a healthy lifestyle, and trust me it is easy to learn. You just have to be willing to try!
