As you know, I’m a huge fan of juicing and, after some encouragement, so is Lacie. It always, has to be my juice, mind, but that’s fine. I just make extra. Knowing that she’s getting some vegetables in her, definitely helps me sleep at night. These days, I can’t even place a vegetable on her tray. If I do, I get a huge ‘NOOOOO Mummy, and its given straight back to me!
Here’s one of our favourite recipes at the moment. It’s been created by Joe Wicks, aka The Body Coach for Philips. I’ve only ever used a Philips Juicer – they are easy to clean (honestly cleaning these juicers can be a real drag!) and they are pretty compact, especially the Viva Collection Compact juicer, so they don’t take over the kitchen.
This recipe is called the Little Green Monster, and it is made from;
3 handfuls of spinach
5 celery sticks
and a ¼ of a lemon.
Give it a go and if your child refuses to eat vegetables, pop a fun, curly straw in your glass and encourage them to try it. Once they have a taste – you won’t get a look in, so next time, make double!!
Have you tried adding a juice to your children’s meals? I’ve found the more colourful the better! You could even get them to help you make it – or pretend too!
