Good nutrition plays an essential role in the health and fitness of your family. However, only 22% of toddlers and preschoolers, and only 16% of kids aged six to eleven get the recommended five or more servings of fruit and vegetables a day, Ohio State research reveals. Enter: smoothies. Delicious and packing an impressive nutritional punch, smoothies make it easy to get in the essential sugars, fat, protein, minerals, and vitamins that fuel your family’s fit lifestyle. You can sneak several portions of fruit and veggies into one smoothie — a lifesaver if you have fussy kids.
