Juicing with a Toddler or Becoming Raw, Tip 4
We created a ritual at home of making a fresh juice together - great bonding experience. Toddlers love repetition and she gets excited when I get the juicer out. All the moving mechanisms and the whole process is also pretty cool from a toddler’s eye. You can see it in the video how much she owns the juicing process these days : )
Even though she doesn't always eat her veggies on her plate, she will happily taste every piece of it and some times even more during juicing. She was so impressed by this large carrot, that she even drank half of my juice. We shared for dinner that juice (1 large carrot, 2 calary pieces, 1 large zuchinni, 2 slices of lemon with the skin, and a little bit of parsley ), avocado straight from the fruit (scooping out avocado with the spoon was fun for my toddler), and a piece of whole grain bread with cheese spread.
Now I have to figure out how to get her drink green juices and smoothies.
Well, we have been drinking green smoothies on daily basis for more then a year now. My daughter is 5 now. Whatever we model as parents, the kids adopt to it and take it as a family tradition. It's not too late to improve your daily habits! Start today or if you don't know how, I will help you, just message me!
Hi Marina, Have you tried SnapPeas with her??? Jacob LOVES them. He also like the 'mini baby' carrots. I will have to try juicing with him too.ReplyDelete
I actually thought you were talking about green peas that she doesn't care about. I did try Snap Peas last summer straight from the garden (in Russia) and she loved them. I totally forgot! Thank you, Michelle :) where do you buy them?ReplyDelete
