Making smoothies with children

Making smoothies with your children has many benefits; getting vitamins & minerals, having a good snack on the go, learning the names of the fruits and vegetables as well as the independence of choosing the fruits in order to make their own recipes, counting the pieces of fruit, using the pincer grip to add the fruit and pouring skills to pour in juice or spooning to add in yogurt.

The Nutribullet is a recently manufactured smoothie maker. It is easy to use and easy to clean. You make your smoothie in the flask you will drink it from and presto you’re ready to go!

Get your kids year off to a healthy start and hope that by instilling these healthy values from a young age they will continue into their adult life. Make a note of all their wonderful recipes and have them draw the pictures. It would make a nice keepsake. Don’t forget lots of counting and allow your children to be as independent as they want to be (once safe!).
