Green Mango Madness

This delicious smoothie was paired with scrambled eggs and a side of toast with fruit spread for my kiddos this morning. Remember, great meals that are balanced and nourishing does not require hours on end in the kitchen. This was quick and easy and I feel reassured knowing that I sent them to school with a good breakfast that will help fuel their day.

KFF Kids On The Move News: Your kiddos need energy just like you do, if they are active/involved in sport you want to make sure they are consuming enough carbohydrates to build their glycogen stores. One way to do this is to offer mangoes and bananas, which are easily digested, they stay in the stomach for a shorter amount of time than fat or protein, and of course they taste great!
