I have been working over time to get as much vitamins (into the children) without being an over-bearing crazy lady. I love to make smoothies for them, because I can add a lot of things that I can't get them to eat on the regular.
The children and I often talk about how important it is to "eat the rainbow". Most of them love fruits- veggies are another story. I like to add kale and cucumbers to our fruit salads, but yesterday I didn't push it.
I sent the kids to the fridge and I asked them to pull out some of the fruits that they would like to try. (Secret: I put said fruits right at the front of the fridge). The kids helped me make this yummy fruit salad.We learnt all the names of the fruits, and they all agreed that they've never eaten papaya (which someone kept referring to as a little pumpkin), before (I can't be sure of that).
Sooo, to celebrate introducing a new fruit AND liking it very much actually, we called our day "We tried something new today" day :)
= all very high in vitamin C
No recipe needed right?
Do your children plan or help prepare simple meals or snacks?
