In the UK, we are so lucky to have a good variety of fruit and veg available to us. It is important to give our children the recommended amount a day. 93% of babies aged between 1 - 3 years old get enough of their daily allowance, but only 10% of 11-18 year old's get their daily allowance! that's a dramatic drop in statistics. That is why Innocent Smoothies are perfect for kids. Between the ages of 1-4, fruit juices and smoothies are a useful source of vitamin C to help with the absorption of iron. Innocent kid’s smoothies also count as one of your child’s 5-a day
When we were at Innocent Towers, we were invited to make our own smoothies and Little Miss T made one with her favourite ingredients - berries! She put them in the blender, added some orange juice and blitzed it......The result was a sour smoothie, so we added banana. Making smoothies is all about experimenting with fruit and veg. Finally she was so pleased with her finished result and was able to take it home.
We also had a chance to 'play' with food. Tilly was never a vegetable eater, in fact she was a very picky eater until she went to school. Thankfully due to the free school dinners, she started to eat veg more and more and now she will eat it at home, there are still some times that I have to still disguise it, but not as much as I used to. You can do this with your children at dinner time to encourage them to eat.
I am lucky in my school as Little Miss T has a fruit basket in her class room and she is allowed to help herself to a piece of fruit at playtime if she wishes. To help get some goodness into our children, The amazing guys at Innocent Towers want to donate a class room full of innocent fruit & veg smoothies to one lucky readers.
