Working with kids is positively challenging when it comes to eating healthy. The competition out there is wildly intense. Virtually every grocery store, office, and clinic offers a lollipop, candy or cookie to make the visit happy. While bakery window-displays adorn the space with brightly colored confectories, the sugar rush causes a hot mess – for Mama and child!

AHA

As the parent, and a surrogate parent for foster kids, the key to success is creativity. Initially, no one really likes to take a pill or even considers eating yogurt or kefir. Usually, this is the first place I like to attack! The gut impacts the behavior of a child and rather than burdening myself with massive discipline efforts; I prefer just getting some good flora into the gut. Read my “aha” moment about discipline versus a bad gut. We are happy to have this information learned from the children we brought through our home.

Since pills are hard to take and the food itself offers a more absorbable option, let’s do this! We actually found these amazing molds at a local store that add another element of fun. There are lots of choices, but this brand is our favorite-  Zoku molds. Remember, you can make a great shake, but when you freeze it; that, my friends, becomes magic sauce for kids!

  1. Hey, I just came here because of Matt Stone’s book recommendation. I’ve recommended your book to a few people I know need it.

    What blender do you use for blending things like the above recipe?

    1. Any blender should work. We use a blendtech because it’s strong, Vitamix is also a great choice. Thanks for visiting, I appreciate it.
