How to Sneak Veggies into your toddler’s diet

 

 

How many of you struggle with giving your little ones their greens? How many of you struggle with eating enough veggies yourself? I know I do! Just the sight of something green that’s not an apple nor a kiwi makes my kids run. But anything sweet will make them drool until I give them some. During my pregnancies (I’m pregnant now) I love making different shakes and smoothies. I can get a full daily serving of veggies within 5 minutes it’s great. And my boys love drinking them too! I’ve shared another shake recipe in the past, but this one is a wee bit different!


Supplies:
  • Blender// I’m using a NutriBullet
Ingredients:
Steps:
  1. Add Banana, Strawberries, Raspberries, Oats and Spinach to blender
  2. Add Happy Tot Whole milk yogurt on top of it all.
  3. Blend until smooth
  4. Pour into a fun and colorful cup for your little one.

Health Benefits:

Banana– Loaded with Potassium, Vitamins A, B6 and C. Also jam packed with fiber, flavonoids and antioxidants. They are good for upset stomachs, ease heartburn pain, relieve constipation, reduce stress and stimulate brain power!

Strawberries– loaded with so many vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, folate, potassium, manganese, dietary fiber, and magnesium. Strawberries are wonderful for eye health, they boost immunity, helps with arthritis and gout, boosts brain function, reduces inflammation and improves heart function.

Raspberries– They are a great source of vitamin C, manganese, and dietary fiber. They are also loaded with copper, vitamin K, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin E, magnesium, folate, omega-3 fatty acids and potassium.

Spinach- Spinach is high in niacin and zinc, as well as protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese. So to sum it all up, Spinach is a super food!

Oats- Named one of the healthiest grains! They are a great source of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. The vitamins and minerals include Manganese, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Copper, Iron, Zinc, Folate, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B5, along with calcium, potassium, vitamin B6, and vitamin B3.

Happy Tot Whole Milk Yogurt If you’ve been a loyal reader, you will remember awhile back I shared why we love the Happy Family Brand. Joel has moved on from Happy Baby yogurt to Happy Tot. Where is my baby going?!!! But we love the Happy Tot brand because they are not loaded with sugar. They are made with probiotics, which is amazing for a healthy gut. They are also Non-GMO, USDA Organic, and made with Whole milk with Vitamin D. Since Joel was young, Happy Family is one of our most trusted brands. We love what they stand behind, and their dedication to making the cleanest and healthiest foods for the littlest mouths in the house.

We purchased Happy Tot Whole Milk Yogurt with Strawberries, Bananas, Oats and Chia. Joel loves eating it by itself from the pouch! Whenever we pack his lunch for the baby sitter’s house, this is always a must!

What’s great is that they can be found at your local Meijer, Safeway, HEB, or Publix. We purchased ours at Publix because we live in Florida and there is a Publix every 2 miles!
