I’ve been worrying about the kids’ restricted diets recently and doing some research into whether protein shakes are good for kids. The resounding answer was yes so I thought you might like to see these too because they might go down well with your picky eaters!

Apparently we can make protein shakes using the blender on the food processor but it needs a pretty powerful motor to get through all of that fruit so we might be better off investing in a smoothie maker like this one.
These drinking bottles, smoothie friendly straws and popsicle molds will all make it easier for the kids to drink (or eat) their protein shakes. I figure the more cool we make it the more likely they’ll consider drinking them right??
