Get Your 5 A Day The Fun Way

Getting the kids to eat their fruit and veg isn’t always easy – but disguise them as ice-lollies or create colourful juices and you’re onto a winner! Nutritionist Lama Al Naeli shares a few of her fave combinations.

blueberry delight

Berry delight with milk

Ingredients:

500 Mls of Milk
2 Handfuls of mixed Berries
2 Handfuls of Grape.

Mix all of the ingredients together – it’s best to do this with a Kenwood Purejuice Slow Press Juicer to get the all the benefits of the ingredients but if not then just blend in a regular blender or juice your fruits and then mix with the milk.

Benefits of serving water and milk:

For kids of all ages, water and milk are the best choices, Beside having zero calories, water is a no-sugar thirst quencher. And 1 cup of milk has 300 milligrams of calcium and is rich with protein, so it’s very important to the kids growth physically and mentally and it’s a big contributor to a child’s daily needs.

Here’s how much calcium kids need each day:

Toddlers( Ages 1 to 3 years): 700 milligrams of calcium daily.
Kids ( Ages 4 to 8 years): 1000 milligrams, older kids ( Ages 9 to 18 years): 1300 milligrams.

carrot orange juice

Tropicana

Ingredients:

2 Carrots
1 Small Pineapple
1 Orange
1 Medium Pear

Juice all of the ingredients – preferably in a  Kenwood Purejuice Slow Press Juicer to get the all the benefits of the ingredients.

This recipe increases the capability of the kids immune system, and helps protect them from diseases.

Tips: This recipe is rich with vitamins including vitamin C (Orange and Pineapple) which enhance the ability to learn and increase the kids capability to focus, especially during study. while vitamin A (from the carrots) enhance the sight and learning ability, the Pear strengthen the body especially the bones.

granola lollies

Tropical granola lollies:

Ingredients:

4 Passions fruit
2 Ripe Bananas
50 gr. Oats
3 Tablespoons Pumpkin seeds
100 gr. Dark Chocolate
100 Ml Cows milk or Camel milk for more benefits.

Mix the Passions fruit, Bananas and milk in Kenwood Purejuice juicer or blender and poured into lolly moulds to freeze overnight.

The next day, melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water and tip the Oats into a bowl.

Remove the lollies from the moulds, dip the tops one at a time in the chocolate, then into the Oats, place on a and eat immediately or freeze until needed.

et voila! Creative ways to get your kids eating the rainbow!
