Lead By Example
Monkey see, monkey do. Kids look up to their parents for cues on what is desirable in dealing with everything from speech to behavior to food likes and dislikes. Show your child that you indulge in green smoothies and enjoy them; you'll be nurturing yourself with powerful nutrition while being a positive role model. You'll discourage your child from being a picky eater, and she'll reap the benefits of a healthy, balanced diet.
