We all know that one of the most important parts of being a parent is taking care of our children, and what better way to do that than by making sure we’re feeding them the most nutritious food we can find.
Healthy Drinks for the Whole Family
While most parents know how important it is for their kids to eat vegetables and good foods, actually getting them to eat those things can sometimes be a challenge.
One easy solution to this problem is turning those healthy and nutritious meals into tasty drinks that everyone in the family will enjoy. Whether you like smoothies, juice, or even just some healthy water, there are plenty of ways to get your kids to drink good stuff without them even knowing it. In this article, we’re going to go over some ways that you can easily make delicious and healthy drinks for your whole family.
Put Together Your Manual Of Recipes
Create your manual of recipes using different combinations of ingredients. For example, if you want to make sure that you get your kids to eat their vegetables, try creating a drink with one vegetable mixed in, and let them know that it has veggies in it so they can start learning to love them.
Be creative – look up healthy drinks online or look for a beginners’ guide to juicing to get the idea of different things you can do with your newfound healthy drink-making skills. Then you can start experimenting on your own. You’ll probably come up with some pretty delicious drinks that the whole family will enjoy, so make sure you write them down so everyone can try them.
Get The Kids Involved In The Preparation
One great way to get your kids involved in the healthy-drink making process is by getting them involved in the preparation of those drinks. For example, if you’re going to be making a smoothie, then try letting your kids pick out which fruit they want on top or what vegetable they would like blended into their drink. Once you have everything ready to go, let them help mix it all. This will give them a sense of responsibility and allow them to feel more of a part of things. Also, since most kids love playing with food more than anything else, this will make sure that none of their hard work goes unnoticed.
Get A Big Variety Of Ingredients To Create Different Flavors And Textures
When you get your ingredients together, make sure you’re getting a wide variety of them. This way, you’ll be able to experiment with different flavors and textures to see what everyone will like the best. You can even get creative and mix fruits or vegetables that might not typically go together into one delicious drink.
If it tastes good, then it doesn’t matter what’s in it (within reason), so don’t be afraid to branch out. If you have kids who are picky eaters or are new to trying out healthy drinks, then you might want to start with something more basic before moving on to some of the more complicated mixes.
Use Fruits To Make Your Drinks Naturally Sweet
Kids are more likely to drink something healthy if it tastes good, so one way you can give your kids the best tasting drinks is by using fruits that are naturally sweet to give them just a touch of sweetness. For example, pineapple mixes well with both vegetables and tropical fruits like mango or papaya, giving you an almost endless number of different combinations.
This will make sure that your kids won’t even realize how much healthier they’re drinking because all they’ll taste is deliciousness! If you want to be sneaky, then try adding vegetables into some of their favorite fruity drinks – they might not even notice.
Get Creative With Your Frozen Berries
Not all healthy drinks have to be green or brown! To give yourself more options, use frozen berries like strawberries and blueberries to make amazingly tasty drinks that don’t even need ice (or if you want to add some extra flavor, you can put some in the blender with your drink).
Non-frozen fruits can be used as well, but one of the great things about frozen fruits is how easy they are to grab on busy mornings when you’re rushed for time. Instead of spending time cutting up fresh strawberries for your kids’ smoothies, you can just pop some frozen strawberries in the blender and know that they’re getting all the same flavor and nutrients without any hassle.
As you can see, getting your kids to eat and drink healthy doesn’t have to be expensive, time-consuming, or difficult. As long as you’re willing to experiment with different recipes and ingredients, you can make your kids’ delicious drinks that they will love.
