Yummy Tummy Smoothie For Kids

 

If you’re a mom, you must likely have encountered days (and nights) of tummy issues with your kids. From tummy aches to food sensitivity, diarrhea or the dreaded constipation, most moms have seen it all and yet we still survive. Around here, we go through phases of constipation. Constipation stresses me out though because I try really hard to get my kids to eat all their fruits and veggies and I try to make sure they get enough fiber in their diet. But yeah, constipation still happens. As all moms do, a little detective food tracking work is in order. For our kids, I’ve found that when they are in an “I’m not eating” or “I’m only eating this…” phase, constipation is sure to follow. Enter this yummy tummy smoothie for kids.

So what’s in a yummy tummy smoothie for kids? Greens of course + fruits and one of my favorite liquids, coconut water. Simple enough and highly effective most of the time. And if things are really bad (like too many days of not visiting the bathroom to let it all out) then I add prunes. My kids actually love prunes so they may just get them as a side to the smoothie. On occasion, I’ll also add some probiotics (they take these daily regardless) and a little fiber.

Rubbermade FreshWorks produce savers keep fruits and vegetables fresh longer. Perfect for this yummy tummy smoothie for kids.

Wondering about the containers I keep our fruits in? No? You should because you will love them. They are the Rubbermaid FreshWorks produce savers and they really work. Now while this yummy tummy smoothie for kids is a must have recipe for parents, these FreshWorks are just as important because we all know produce go bad far too quickly. And they are expensive! Expensive I say especially when you buy organic. I could go on and on about the cost of food that’s good for you and the sometimes sad state of produce in the grocery store but I’ll save that rant for another day.

Rubbermade FreshWorks produce savers keep fruits and vegetables fresh longer. Perfect for this yummy tummy smoothie for kids.

On average, if I keep my produce stored in the grocery store container, they may last a week but usually less! My kids are used to having a ton of produce because, waste not, want not!  

Tip: Never wash or cut up produce before storing unless you plan to freeze them right away. 

Tip 2: Let the family know they still need to wash the produce once they take them out of the FreshWorks containers. Trust me, you will need to remind them a few times. LOL. 

Yummy tummy smoothie for kids to help with constipation.

So cheers to better tummy days with this yummy tummy smoothie.

What’s your favorite smoothie ingredients?
