Pick ‘N’ Mix Fruit & Chia Smoothie

For some kids encouraging them to eat a nutritious can be a daily struggle. Breakfast is an extremely important meal for children. After a long goodnight sleep and hours of fasting their little bodies need to be refuelled to give them the energy to play, learn and concentrate throughout the day. Smoothies are a delicious way for kids to enjoy breakfast – they can be a nutritious and satisfying option helping to end the daily battle.

Nutrition Note: Chia seeds pack a nutritious punch. They’re high in protein, omega 3 fatty acids and fibre, and they’re nutrient and antioxidant rich, making them a wonderful addition to your child’s diet.

    Hi I have tried this recipe yesterday. the pick n mix option i chosen Kiwi and Mango. To be very honest we don’t like this smoothie. It was bitter in taste. not sure why? Chia seeds i added straight. do we need to wash the chia seeds then add? please advise how can i make this recipe without bitter taste.

    Great Recipe! We made this with seasonal raspberries & strawberries (that were on special!) and chucked in some ice for good measure. Needless to say, my 2 year old and I drank it all up ^^

    Hi is there a way to make these without the banana and still make it filling? My little man vomits banana.
