Apple & spinach smoothie with quinoa and avocado

My toddler is starting to become a fuss pot. I spend a lot of time preparing fresh, organic food only to find it thrown on the floor, rejected, or spat from his mouth. The waste makes my heart sink.

Greens are especially becoming the “I’m not going to eat them mummy no matter how hard you try to make me to!” food. But I’ve had a brain wave – smoothie them!

Today’s lunch was a roaring success. Even though his facial expression said: “I’ve been tricked”

  • Apple and spinach smoothie – vitamin and mineral fix plus a good combo of vitamin c and iron for better absorption.
  • Avocado and quinoa – essential fats and amino acids.
  • Vegetable tofu which he loves – great protein, great calcium
