If you can't get your kids to eat it - get them to drink it!
Lets face facts: on the whole kids just hate eating veg. They don't mind a bit of fruit from time to time, but sit them down to some raw broccoli and they're more likely to stick it in some soil and shout 'bonsai' then actually eat the stuff! However, turn it into nature's finest liquid fuel, mix it with, say, some fresh pineapple or apple juice, and bingo - they're licking their lips in seconds. Kids are mesmerized by juicing. When they see fresh juice coming out of a solid vegetable like a carrot, they're transfixed. Little Molly, my four-year-old adopted niece who pops round most mornings for her morning juice, loves veggie juice. Yes, you heard it right, a four-year-old who drinks vegetable juice! Not only does she drink ingredients such as beetroot, celery, cucumber and carrot, but she even makes the juice herself (with supervision, of course!). She's not the only one either. I now know hundreds of kids, from age two upwards, who are consuming the finest body and brain builders known to wo/man on a regular basis. In fact, juicing and smoothie making is simply the best way of getting raw live fuel into your kids without the usual nightmare of trying to get them to eat it.
