A simple way to give your child’s daily meal plan a super nutrition boost is to introduce daily green smoothies.  The earlier you do this the better because a child’s taste buds start developing before birth!  Pregnant and nursing women should eat a wide variety of flavors including bitter greens, fermented sour foods and yes, spicy foods too.  This helps a developing baby get both the nutrients he needs AND form taste preferences for a wide variety of foods.

The smoothie I am going to share with you today is one I gave both my children as toddlers.  It’s easy to make, mild in flavor, and full of raw enzymes.  My little one (2) often requests her “Geeen Moothy” at lunch time.  I hope your children like it as much as mine.
