"Honestly, that does not look very appetising - don't think many kids will
drink that. In fact , it looks like slime! Sorry! There are many more
drinks you can make that have a lovely colour and are more pleasing to the
eye. Also, what about ice lollies? You can food process fruit and salads
and make them into attractive ice lollies for the kids.
"i love this idea for a healthy snack! i will try it and let everone know
how my kids like it. :)
Again great IDEA! "
"Yumm sounds good to me, humm wonder if I can use the new V8
Splash,,,,fruit & veggies, "
"we've lucked out with two of three eating nearly every fruit and veggie
available. the picky child requires multi exposure with fingers crossed.
some veggie kids will eat raw better esp in salad. puree veggies always a
bonus as add nutrients. our main problem is getting kids to return to
biting apples since lost those front teeth - even with new teeth in they
still insist can't bite. we enjoy doing veggie tasting trays with multi
choices and kids try one bite of each raw, cooked, to decipher their taste
"Some of these ideas are really not so great. The drinkable salad, is only
as good as any fresh fruit juice. With all the fiber removed, the body
will not recognize the calories consumed and continue to want to eat until
it feels fiber full and nutrient full. Put those things in a blender
instead of the juicer and you've got a winner!"
"You can puree cooked squash or carrots to mix into macaroni and cheese. I
smash cooked cauliflower into mashed potatoes. There are lots of ways to
"That sounds great for fruit but I also have the ew to vegetable problem
any 'sneaky' suggestions ?"
"I agree, If you can puree it, you can hide it!"
"My son has food allergies and is picky to boot. So we tend to stick with
similar foods. Now I can add some more veggies to our 'repertoire'.;-)
These are wonderful ideas...I love them ALL!!
"Pureeing veggies is the only way I can sneak it in my kids meals. My boys
age 6 and 3 love spagetti so I'll make a simple homemade tomato sauce and
to it I'll add pureed carrots, zucchini and mushrooms. Then I'll top the
spagetti with a springle of parmesan cheese and know that on this day,
they ate well. "
"Hard to have as a snack at school - but, sounds like a yummy idea when the
weather warms up!"
