How do you feel about the end of summer and the restart of school for the kids? I’m torn. While I am thrilled they are heading back and we’ll getting our life back into a routine, I am not looking forward to the morning craze that seems inevitable on school day mornings. Neither of my children are big breakfast eaters and both eat much less than the norm. As a very health conscientious mom, I worry about their nutrition intake. I’ve learned over the years the best ways to get them to eat more and how to pack as much nutrition and calories into what they eat as possible. Our morning rush certainly complicates getting them to fill their bellies and acquire the nutrition they need for a powerful start to the school day.
My kids have always loved smoothies. So, with back to school in mind, I set out to create a high calorie, nutrition packed, superfood smoothie that will not only fill their bellies but feed their brains. A smoothie they can drink on the way to school after they’ve picked at the breakfast on the table. The result is a nutrition packed smoothie that has become their (and the whole family’s) very favorite!

The fact that my small daughter loves this smoothie is especially reassuring. She’s at an age where nutrition is extra important and the quantities she eats not enough. To her smoothie, I use one packet of Go & Grow by Similac® Mix-Ins™ for one serving (or ½ cup of food). The Go & Grow by Similac® Mix-Ins™ couldn’t be easier to use and it has extra nutrients right in the mix. You just add it to the healthy food they’re already eating. The Go & Grow by Similac® Mix-Ins™ is not for babies. It’s designed to be added to a regular healthy diet for toddlers like mine and help maintain balanced nutrition. I call it my secret weapon to making sure she gets the protein, fiber, and essential vitamins and minerals she needs. Both Go & Grow by Similac® Mix-Ins™ and Go & Grow by Similac® Milk Based Powder are available at your local Walmart and at Walmart.com. Buy Now
These nutrition boosting smoothies are a great way to start off the school day or perfect for an energy-boosting after school snack. Don’t let the avocado, kale or flaxseed meal scare you! Your kids (nor you) will even know these incredible superfoods make up such a large part of the smoothie. It’s an ideal way to give them the nutrition they need and the piece of mind you need.
