Today I am happy to have Samantha from Your Golden Ticket Blog sharing about something near and dear to her heart. I know that I am quite lucky to have boys who eat a variety of food, but there’s always room for improvement.
Do you struggle to get your kids to eat their full daily servings of fruits and veggies? Well you are not alone!
My kids will actually eat a few veggies and they really love fruit, but they still do not eat enough variety or a large enough amount to give them their full daily serving. I have known for a while that this was an issue I needed to fix in our house, but I just wasn’t sure how. I have tried local farmers markets and bountiful baskets, but the produce would go bad too quickly and I was frustrated because not only did I not get to give my family the nutrition they needed but I also wasted money on food that spoiled. Then there are those times that I have cooked a yummy meal with lots of healthy veggies only to have all of my kids complain that the vegetables were gross and pick out all of the goodness I just made for them. Does any of this sound familiar to you moms out there? I know it does.
I cannot express how excited I was to find a simple way to get my kids the real food they need without any extra effort! There is a new company called Blendfresh that has taken real foods (just plain fruits and veggies, seeds, beans, and sprouts) and fresh-dried them so they retain their full nutritional potency. Then they pulverized them into a fine powder so they are easy to mix in and use with the food your family already eats! Isn’t that awesome? Plus, there are 12 different fruits and veggies in each color so if you used all four of the colors you would get 48 different fruits and vegetables into your families’ diet—without them even knowing it!!
I mix Blendfresh into our oatmeal, smoothies, yogurt, spaghetti sauce, taco meat, pancake mix, ice cream, ketchup, and even straight into my water.
They also have a yummy protein, pro-biotic, and fiber blend. Blendfresh is nut-free, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, with no GMOs, no pesticides, no fillers, and no preservatives. Everything is plant based (Vegan) and if you have any allergies or a special diet you can still use this pure food!
It seems so simple to be adding food to food, but brilliant at the same time! I have really loved using these clean foods for the past two months and feel good about giving my family the nutrition they need naturally. I don’t have to buy vitamins or supplements because we are getting everything our bodies need direct from the sources! Since this is real food everyone in my family can eat it–even my baby loves Blendfresh—actually she might love it the most.
Getting my kids to eat their fruits and veggies has become a non-issue at my house since we are getting more than our daily servings now using Blendfresh.
Here’s a recipe for you:
