Get your kids to drink their fruit and veggies


If you have trouble convincing your kids to eat fruit and vegetables, why not give juicing a try?

It’s quick, easy and more often than not, you’ll find your kids fascinated by the process and more than happy to sample the results. Plus, it is a fantastic way to boost young immune systems with a concentrated dose of vitamins and minerals. All you need is a good juicer and plenty of fruit and veg on standby—and don’t be afraid to experiment.

Here are a couple of easy recipes to get you started, given the stamp of approval by my two-year-old son, Teddy:

Green is for go!

  • 2 cups of fresh wakame seaweed (soak in water for five minutes before using)
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 large apples (any color is fine)
  • 1 beetroot
  • 1 cup of spinach
  • Fresh ginger to taste

Juice all the ingredients together and when finished, stir thoroughly. If you wish to sweeten the juice further, add more apples until you get your desired taste.
