Strawberry Peanut Butter Smoothie

If you have a hungry kiddo like mine, you definitely need to start making this Strawberry Peanut Butter Smoothie. Loaded with protein, it’s perfect as a side to breakfast or afternoon snack.


Kids Need More Whole Foods

During those formidable years of growth between 8-14, kids need a lot of extra protein and more whole foods. The higher a child’s energy levels, the more calories they need too.

Whole foods take up a lot of bulk and space in your stomach, so they work mechanically to make you feel full faster. This is great if you are trying to lose weight. But if you have a growing child to feed you need to make sure you give him or her a lot of food!

Strawberry Peanut Butter Smoothie is a Perfect Snack

Anyway, kid snacks (adult snacks too!) need to be as jam packed with as many nutrients as possible. This is great in theory, but let’s face it, nutrient-dense foods (think kale!) don’t often appeal to kids.

On a whim, I just decided to google “healthy kids snacks” to see what popped up and sure enough empty calorie processed foods such as pretzels, were right on top of the suggested snacks. Feeding your kids nutrient-poor foods are a surefire way to get them on the fast track to becoming overweight and simultaneously undernourished.

Smoothies are Great for Convenience

You can absolutely meet a child’s energy requirements by feeding him spoonfuls of sugar. However, it’s super important to consider their nutrition needs. Kids need to whole foods to support growth and a healthy immune system.  But yes, I do actually “get it”, I know convenience rules. I’m a busy frazzled mom and I too need snacks that are fast and easy.

Keeping bananas, frozen strawberries and peanut butter around is about as convenient as you can get.


How to Make the Strawberry Peanut Butter Smoothie

Finding creative snack recipes for kids isn’t difficult at all…what’s challenging is finding HEALTHY “eat clean” creative snack recipes that your kids will actually eat. Smoothies are one of my favorite “go to” fun healthy kids snack foods because they pack a super nutritional punch in a yummy, creamy almost dessert-like package. And, they are quick and easy enough that your kids can pretty much make themselves. Watch my nine-year old in action below =)
