Healthy Food

When Reese was a baby and toddler, I put in a lot of effort to make nutritious food for him; only home cooked food. The past 2 years, due to laziness and work, Reese took a lot more outside food. The only thing that did not change since he started solid food is consuming lots of fruits. He loves fruits. Everyday he will have at least 2 to 3 kinds of whole fruits. He doesn't quite like vegetables but now he will take broccoli, cauliflower, french beans, carrots and 2 to 3 types of leafy greens cooked in soup. Here are some simple nutritious snack to share with your children. Takes 5 minutes to make and clean up!

Breakfast - Dragon fruit, grapes, banana and mango flavored yogurt.  I rotate different fruits and yogurt flavor  every week. Reese will have this once or twice a week. You can also add some cereal for the extra crunch! My husband who doesn't like yogurt finds this pretty good. :)

Green smoothie. Reese loves to help prepare the drink.

We use raw baby spinach, banana and mango to cover the raw taste of spinach.  Sometimes I will add cherry tomatoes  or zucchini. We blend the ingredients and add a little bit of water and ice. It's actually yummy. :)

The green color put me off initially but it actually tasted good. All natural and very healthy.
