Anyone out there who struggles with a picky eater will agree with me that meal time can be straight up torture. Getting my 4 year old to eat anything other than yogurt and chocolate milk is a battle. This is why I was on the hunt for something I could get my son to not just eat but enjoy.
After searching and searching I came across KidzShake on instagram and knew I had to try it. I LOVE it. My kids love it because tastes really good. I was expecting a chalky-protein-style shake taste and was surprised it was smooth when mixed in a shaker bottle and it tasted really good.
In the words of the company itself,
KidzShake contains only the good stuff that your child needs to get the nutrition and vitamins they require to grow and be healthy. There is zero sugar, no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Its gluten free, lactose free, nut free and totally free of Trans Fatty Acids. It contains digestive enzymes, probiotics, omega 3 and trace minerals to support healthy growth and development.
Now with something this healthy, I thought that for sure I would have to mix KidzShake into a smoothie and sneak it in, but as it turns out his favorite way to have it is just mixed in a shaker bottle.
They have a lot of flavors and recipes up on their website here that you can find what works for your kids but my son loves his chocolate milk so I substitute this recipe from KidzShake blog for a healthy version of "chocolate milk." Another recipe I have found that is more of a smoothie consistency is this recipe:
4 scoops chocolate KidzShake
1/2 cup ice
1 frozen banana
1 cup greek vanilla yogurt
*I also sneak a handful of spinach in there.
Even my little guy digs it :)
I would be doing you a disservice if I didn't mention they also have this cool KidzSprinkles. Turns out I use this more than the shake because I can just sprinkle it on anything I am already feeding them. I am in no way saying I am a great mom and feed my kids all these healthy foods because even I struggle to eat healthy, but I'm trying and that's the first step. One thing my kids will eat without a fight is yogurt. I like to sprinkle this KidzSprinkles right into their yogurt, ketchup, even on their Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches. My latest healthy snack I have finally gotten him to eat is apples with almond butter. I sprinkle some of this and mix it with the almond butter and he chows it down. The sprinkles don't have any flavor so it doesn't alter the consistency or the flavor of what you are adding it to so that is a major plus.
After I tried and loved this product I contacted them asking if I could give my readers a discount and they agreed. Can I hear a whoop whoop ;) So for anyone wanting to add some more nutrition into their children diet then use the code: "BRIDGET" for 5 dollars off!
