Children like to help in the kitchen, and smoothies are an easy and healthy food to prepare. Recruit your kids to mix up this treat, and stock up their bones with calcium. Bananas provide potassium and vitamin C, while berries are excellent sources of antioxidants. Kids today eat too much refined sugar and fat in processed foods.
