Healthy Snacks by Color – Green

This week was supposed to be yellow snacks but certain members of my family ate all my props :) So I will switch things up and do GREEN snacks this week and YELLOW next week!

Getting our kids to eat green fruits and veggies is so important for their optimum health as they are loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytonutrients!  If that isn’t an easy task at your house I would highly suggest making green smoothies!  It’s an easy way to get those greens into your kids!  We usually put in a few cups of whatever fruit we have on hand, a cup of baby spinach and a cup of either coconut water or apple juice.  If you aren’t using any frozen fruit it’s a good idea to add some ice cubes to make the smoothie nice and cold!  If you think your kids won’t been keen on the green color of the smoothie just add blueberries to cover up that green! You can also start off with 1/2 cup of spinach or kale rather than the full cup! Patriot Power Greens supplements are a go to if, you don’t have fresh greens on hand. The have all the nutrition needed for healthy development.
