A lot of parents complain about making lunches each day for their children for school. I don’t find lunches much of a problem, breakfast is the hardest for me. Getting up and my son out the door in time for school is hard enough without fighting to get something in his belly to start his day. My son does like smoothies, so when I was asked to try Kidzshake, I was somewhat hopeful.
What is KidzShake?
KidzShake is a nutritional shake that was developed by a doctor (with kids of her own) specifically for kids, not just kid version of an adult drink. These shakes contain ingredients that growing bodies need, no added sugar or artificial sweeteners, 17 essential minerals and vitamins, probiotics, and is GMO Free, gluten free, soy free, nut free, corn free. And the best part, they actually taste really good. I tried them myself.
My son was instantly impressed. We tried both the chocolate and vanilla flavors and tried each flavor by adding milk and then by adding only water. His favorite was the vanilla with milk. It almost tasted like a vanilla milkshake. We then added some ice and tossed it all in the blender and then they definitely tasted like a milkshake. Having a milkshake for breakfast that was actually good for you was a real bonus for my son.
We also tried using KidzShake as a base for smoothies by adding fruit and veggies to them and adding even more nutrition to them. Aside from the chocolate and vanilla flavors, there are strawberry and orange cream as well. My son has requested we get the orange cream flavor next time. With 4 flavors as a base and so many ways you can add to these shakes, we will never get bored of having them.
My son is always wanting popsicles and freezies, so I think I may just have to use this to make a healthy version and not have to worry about all the sugar that can be found in other versions.
At least now in the morning I am not dreading trying to get him to put something in his stomach that is not only good for him but something that he will enjoy.
