Healthy Breakfast Smoothies for Kids

Healthy Breakfast Smoothies for Kids

| Crissy Page |

We’re loving these healthy breakfast smoothies for kids because they taste great and provide a fabulous nutritional boost for children. Parents will appreciate these easy dairy-free and gluten-free smoothies for kids!

I’d like to thank MegaFood® for sponsoring this post.

Just when I think my kids are going to outgrow their picky eating tendencies, I’m proven wrong. Honestly, it’s still sometimes a struggle to get my children to make healthy food choices.

It’s why I am still a huge fan of creating delicious and nutritious breakfast smoothies for my kids. It’s such an easy way to increase the fruits, vegetables and whole grains in their diet.

My kids are HUGE smoothie fans, so this works out really well as part of our breakfast routine.

I even upped my smoothie game recently when I discovered MegaFood® Kids Daily B-Centered™ Nutrient Booster Powder™. It’s anherbal formula designed to support mental focus, and a sense of calm.*

B Centered Smoothie

This product was developed for kids ages 5 and over, so it’s perfect for Evan and Kara. Since this powder was designed to support a sense of calm and focus, it’s a wonderful addition to our school mornings.

You just add one level scoop to 6-8 ounces of your child’s smoothie, juice, or shake and blend well. I always taste test my kids’ smoothies (someone’s got to do it!) and I can confirm that you can’t taste any trace of the product in the smoothie.

B Centered

MegaFood® Kids Daily B-Centered™ Nutrient Booster Powder™ is loaded with some really great ingredients!

Kids Daily B-Centered™ Nutrient Booster Powder™ is formulated with a full spectrum of FoodState® B Vitamins to support the health of the nervous system.*

It also includes chamomile and lemon balm, herbs known to help provide a sense of calmness in children, as well as Bacopa, an Ayurvedic herb, traditionally used to enhance cognitive function.*

Another ingredient, L-Theanine, may help to promote mental focus in easily excitable children.*

Breakfast Smoothie

Since I’m already a huge fan of MegaFood®, I feel confident that this is a high-quality product for my growing children.

Because they are crafted from whole foods, MegaFood® supplements deliver essential vitamins and minerals—and, ultimately, clean nutrition—in a way that nature intended.

Only the best for this little cutie!

Another reason why I am confident in MegaFood® products is that the brand recently became a Certified B Corporation® which means they are committed to higher standards of transparency and accountability in their products as well as being a force for social good in the community.

Also, these supplements are made from high-quality, organic or sustainably grown whole foods—the best source of nourishment.

I LOVE that!

Smoothie Recipes for Kids

While there are literally hundreds of different breakfast smoothies for kids, I’ve included three simple recipes below that my children love.

My daughter’s favorite is my blueberry avocado smoothie. My son loves my almond butter and jelly smoothie, and both kids love my simple choco-banana smoothie.

Feel free to choose fresh or frozen fruit for your healthy smoothies for kids.

I do find that using frozen fruit produces a consistency that my kiddos prefer since it turns out more like ice cream!

Each of these healthy breakfast smoothies for kids is vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free.

Likewise, all MegaFood® products are tested for 125+ pesticides and herbicides, certified dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, vegan, Kosher and Non-GMO Project Verified. Additionally, MegaFood® is the first supplement brand to have its entire line certified Glyphosate Residue Free!

I’m so excited to have discovered MegaFood® Kids Daily B-Centered™ Nutrient Booster Powder™, and I plan to continue adding a scoop to my kids’ daily breakfast smoothies. I hope you’ll give my smoothie recipes and this wonderful product a try soon!
