Spinach is a powerhouse food that is packed with nutrients and phytochemicals. A wonderful way to add spinach to a child’s (or adult’s) diet is through adding it to smoothies. This recipe is called “superhero smoothie” because just as superheroes in stories fight crime, the spinach in this smoothie helps fight off illness!

"Learn to Love Veggies" Tip
Having kids in the kitchen is a wonderful way to teach about food as well as academic and life skills. As they add the ingredients you can have conversations about the color and texture of the various foods, count them as you add foods in, and for many recipes there are times of taking turns and following instructions. Also, children who help prepare foods are more likely to eat them. So it is a win-win!!
