Hidden Veggie Smoothie 

We already know the importance of children getting enough fruit and vegetables into their daily diet. However, finding a way to get little ones to eat two to four servings of fruit and three to five servings of vegetables every day can be tough – I know it’s tough with my two boys. Sneakiness is needed for my picky eaters. You too can help your child get the recommended daily amounts of both fruits and veggies with this smoothie.

1 cup low-fat milk 
½ cup orange juice 
1 banana, peeled
1 apple, cut up
¼ cup strawberries, blueberries or pineapple 
1 tbsp honey 
¼ cup plain yoghurt 
1 carrot, peeled 
1 cucumber 
1 cup cauliflower 

1. Pour milk into the blender
2. Add your fruits, veggies, honey and yoghurt. Add milk or orange juice if it gets too thick
3. Put blender on a high setting for a minute or two
4. Serve immediately. For toddlers, serve in a cup with a straw
