My husband's 3 month healthy eating plan My husband has signed up to a 3 month ‘healthy eating plan’. It is driving me to distraction. The kitchen is full of avocados, broccoli and bananas. No more biscuits, no more naughty treats. I have watched as he painstakingly measures and prepares his breakfast, lunch and dinner with precision. I also watched as he made himself a ‘delicious’ smoothie. It looked like the stuff that comes out of my babies nose on regular occasions but I agreed to try a bit if I could close my eyes. It was surprisingly tasty and despite its looks, and I soon found myself making a healthy smoothie each day. My little boy loves the sound of the blender whirring round and round. He looks in fascination as he shouts ‘WAM;, ‘WAM’. (This means round)! I let him try some of my banana and beery smoothie and he couldn't get enough of it. This got me thinking, can children drink smoothies? I spent the evening googling for smoothie recipes for my 20 month old and found a surprising amount of them. The next morning I gave it a go; one banana, a handful of berries and a dash of milk. Benjamin watched in fascination as the ingredients whizzed round and round. I grabbed him a straw and before I could turn around he was grabbing the jar out of my hands. Not.a.sound. My noisy and demanding toddler had gone silent and all I could hear was the bubbles of the smoothie being sucked up through the straw. Benjamin absolutely loved his smoothie. His face looked like he had buried it in a tub of red paint, and his nice new top was covered in berry stains but he was one happy little monkey. What a great idea. Healthy, quick and easy; this smoothie lark is an absolute godsend. Next week, I'm going to experiment with the broccoli; or as one well know body coach describes it… ‘Midget trees’….
