Fruits and vegetables consumption lacking in children
“Eating more fruits and vegetables adds under consumed nutrients to diets, reduces the risks for leading causes of illness and death, and helps manage body weight.” CDC August 8, 2014
According to the CDC study, 60% of children aged 1-18 years old did not consume the recommended intake of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Schedules are busy, lives move too fast and one item that suffers is the consumption of fruits and vegetables. The mom or dad arrives home late from work and must speed off with one of the children to soccer practice and the best they do is grab a fake fruit bar on their way out the door. On the way home, they stop and buy a large pizza from their favorite shop and the tomato sauce becomes the closest to a fruit intake for the day.
Fruits and vegetables consumed via Green Smoothies
One of the best ways to get more fruits and vegetables into your children is via a green smoothie. The fruit sweetens the spinach, kale, or other greens that you add to the smoothie with few complaints from your family. Over the past 40 years, I consumed countless fruits and vegetables in this manner and utilized the same approach for my children and now my grandchildren. It warms my heart when one of the grandchildren ask, “pappy, will you make us a ‘moothie’?” Will I ever deny them fruits and vegetables in a smoothie? Nope! I have served countless smoothies to family and friends. Do you have a picky eater in your family? Then introduce them to green smoothies for life and they will consume more than the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables without complaints. Fruit and Vegetables are much cheaper during the summer and why not mix a handful of kale, bananas, ice, and raw cacao for a great tasting green, ‘chocolate’ drink?
Are you thirsty after a long day in the yard? Cut a piece of pineapple, add it to two cups of water, and add a few leaves of mint or drops of mint essential oils to the mix and let the cooling effects take over! 😀
