10 Healthy Smoothies for Kids

What better way to get some fruits and veggies into your kids’ diet than a refreshing smoothie! These 10 healthy smoothies for kids are perfect for breakfast, lunch, or even a delicious snack.

I don’t know about your kids, but mine get so excited when I give them a smoothie! Maybe it reminds them of an Icee or other frozen drink, but I don’t complain because I know I’m feeding them something really nutritious. You can pack so many healthy foods into a smoothie (fruit, veggies, seeds, yogurt).

These healthy smoothies for kids are great to give your kids for breakfast, or send in fun smoothie pops for lunch. We also love them as after school snacks! The possibilities are endless with smoothies.
