When I hear people say that their kid’s don’t eat vegetables, it makes me so sad.  An entire food group! This is their base in life. This is where it all starts.  Not only are we building their healthy little bodies but we are building their habits for life.

Here is a little hack that I learned. Just make a fruit smoothie and hide some greens in it. Work up to it gradually. The kids will get used to it. In the beginning, I used to put a few leaves of lettuce. Now my kids wait for the  “green shakes”. This one has bok choy, and different sprouts, figs, white dragon fruit and peaches. Any fruit works.  Go for it. Try making a smoothie with some greens and let me know if they try it.   You will be surprised how many things you can sneak into a smoothie. So many types of greens and chia seeds, basically anything you want.  The power of fresh fruit.

Read about Seattle food events, recipes or just immerse in the food obsession. Check out my other blog in the Seattle PI http://blog.seattlepi.nwsource.com/franticfoodie/
