Smoothie recipes for home (1556)

Key points below

Smoothies can be used when your child needs more nutrition but may not want to eat a full meal. Sometimes drinking is easier than eating food. The recipes below give your child calories, protein, vitamins and minerals. You can also work with your child to make your own recipes. To make the smoothie recipes below, add all solid ingredients into the blender followed by the liquid ingredients. Blend until smooth, about 1 minute. These smoothies may not meet 100% of your child’s nutrition needs. Your child’s dietitian can help you decide how many smoothies your child should have each day.
