Given how active a kid's day normally is -- between recess, doing sports and running around -- it's essential for them to stay hydrated. Recently, I got turned on to Odwalla's new line of Smoothies For Kids. They're not only gluten-free but they are also not from concentrate and are made from mashed, crushed and pressed fruits – which is why you find them in the refrigerator section of select groceries.
These smoothies provide an excellent source of antioxidant Vitamin C and unlike many juice products which come in what seems like super-sized containers, Odwalla's Smoothies For Kids are 6.75 fluid ounces. They also contain one serving of fruit that is a great start to incorporating fruit into your kids diet (just remember, the majority of fruit should still come from whole fruit.) So overall, these Odwalla Smoothies For Kids are the perfect combination of taste and goodness.
Over the next two months, I'm going to be posting videos about how you can pack a simple school lunch including one of these smoothies, featuring a bunch of cool ideas and tips to make your life easier. In today's video I'm making PB&J Sushi, watermelon balls, sugar snap peas, hummus, and whole wheat chocolate chip cookies, and pairing it with a Strawberry Banana Smoothie.
P.S. Kenya and Chloe almost broke the refrigerator door off its hinges the first time they saw these smoothies in there. Good thing these are juice boxes I am more than happy about giving them!
