If you can’t make them eat it, let’s get them to drink it (and like it!) Juicing is an excellent way to include lots of healthy fruits and vegetables in your kid’s diet plan. They’re a quick fix for busy mornings or when your kid is searching the kitchen cabinets to get his or her hands on to something refreshing.
It is often a difficult task for parents to provide their kids with the important nutrients required for their healthy growth, and some parents give up! However, you might have heard that one technique is to sneak them into yummy juices, because really, what kids doesn’t love juice?
Juicing helps you to introduce new flavors to your kids. Strong tastes can be mixed and matched with something sweet and colorful so their little minds convince their tastebuds that this juice will be goooood. And best of all, creating these habits now can increase your child’s likelihood of continuing healthy habits into their adult life.
Recipes can range from kid-approved traditional favorites to more exotic, adventurous smoothies. I bet you’re wondering how these can look, so let’s get into the good stuff. Mentioned below are some instant recipes that might get thumbs up from your kiddo:
Apple and Orange Juice
Mix the apple juice with an orange squeezed using a traditional hand juicer. This is a good option for beginners because it has common, beloved ingredients. Just to make a slight variation, add carrot juice instead of apples.
Carrot, Pear and Orange Juice
Juice carrots and pears in the juicer. Oranges can be squeezed using a traditional hand juicer to keep the pulp. Combine and mix well. Mix a little water to make it less concentrated.
Mango, Pineapple and Kale Juice
The pineapple and mango together make a super-sweet juice, which the kale helps to tone down. Together they make a big dose of Vitamin A, C and K, a great treat for your little champ
Apple, beetroot and carrot juice makes a colorful and healthy addition to your kid’s diet plan.
Add a pinch of lemon juice to spruce-up regular apple juice that your little champ has started getting fussy about.
Tomato, Carrot, Spinach and Apple Juice
The key note for this one is to juice the spinach, as well.
