How do you get your Kids to be crrrrazy about healthy eating?
Well, you have two options. You can:
A) Hypnotize them into believing that if they don’t eat all the good stuff, the tooth fairy’s gonna show up with a drill for a few early extractions.
B) Get into the habit of making healthy smoothies for the whole family and have a blast in the process.
When “smoothie making” and “salad tossing” become epic events in a household filled with fun and laughter, the loudest and most joyous voices you’ll hear in the Kitchen would be that of your Kids (unless you also have a Pet Wolf in the house);
They’ll even start munching away at those raw carrots like they’re the sweetest thing on the planet. After all, they wanna appear “cool enough” to be considered worthy of their “awesomeness memberships”.
Kids wanna be “unconditionally” loved, appreciated and accepted. They wanna wiggle their toes, tickle their puppies and just have fun.
So, if you do everything from a place of love and get into the habit of flossing away all the blame, criticism, and worry from your psyche every morning before even starting the day, they’ll start seeing you both as the undisputed kingpins of the household.
Now, after you get the household purring along like a litter of kittens, it’s time to bring out the “smoothies”. You obviously don’t want them to drink something that tastes like the “Federal Prison’s Specialty of the Day”. Or something that makes them feel like they’re chewing grass next to a Cow.
Instead, you wanna them to have something that makes them tap their feet and spin around the second they take their first sip. Obviously you don’t want them doing the spinning part after every sip as it can cause indigestion and even dizziness. And a book that will help you do just is Amy Roskelley and Nicole Cormier’s “201 Healthy Smoothies & Juices for Kids”.
