As any mom, I truly want the best for my kids when it comes to nutrition. I am so lucky that Adalyn has always been a good eater from the start. As a dietitian, I have a pretty good idea of what foods that toddlers need, though we still struggle at times just like any parent feeding toddlers.


Lately, at age 3, Adalyn has been struggling with eating meals. I know that part of the problem is that we are giving her snacks which sometimes, fill her little belly up too much before a meal. We are now trying to limit snacks close to dinnertime which seems to be our biggest struggle. If we do give her a snack within an hour or two of dinnertime, we try to stick to something light and nutritious like raw vegetables.


Adalyn is still an awesome eater but some of those uncommon veggies are getting left on her plate. She is currently not a fan of mushrooms, zucchini, squash, turnips and beets. I cook some of everything though so we keep offering her these foods and hope that she will start liking them again soon.

The morning is my favorite time with the kids. They are both happy for the most part and we get excited each day to make breakfast together. We have the same taste in breakfast foods and enjoy a sweet breakfast most days. I made this smoothie for her to drink on-the-go on days where we have an early morning activity or school.


While Adalyn mostly eats well, I do worry about her getting DHA since we do not eat much fish. I do give her chia seeds which she loves on her yogurt and in smoothies which are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. This beverage is kid-friendly and you know that your child is getting important DHA. 


This smoothie is perfect because it is totally kid-friendly and takes two minutes to make on a busy morning. I call it a breakfast smoothie but you can totally make it for your kids for a snack as well. If your kids can't have peanut butter, try sunflower butter, almond butter or soy nut butter instead. Whip this quick smoothie up and kids will be thinking that they are getting a treat!
