The Perfect Smoothie

Your child’s winter smoothies need to include protein, fat, fruits and veggies. Start with a protein like Healthy Height Shake Mix, which comes in both chocolate and vanilla. It’s also developed and tested by pediatricians and created just for kids. For fat, turn to  nut butter, coconut, yogurt or even avocado.

While fruits are easy to choose, since your child likely enjoys many of them, veggies may be harder to pick. Here are a few good vegetables for your immune-boosting smoothies:

  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Canned pumpkin
  • Roasted squash
  • Cauliflower
