Getting my toddler to eat veggies is one of the most difficult things I have to deal with every day. The constant refusal without even trying them is incredibly frustrating and not to mention tiresome. Lately, I have started giving my son smoothies every now and then. Not only do they give him great servings of fruits and veggies, but he sucks them down and won’t even share with me! It’s a great way to get your child to eat fruits and veggies, while still keeping it nutritious. So I’m definitely leaning into toddler smoothie recipes.
If you’re having the same struggle as me, try giving your child some delicious smoothies with these awesome toddler smoothie recipes.
1. Berry Blast Smoothie
Do you think you could ever get your child to eat spinach? Me neither, however, this smoothie has 2 handfuls of spinach in it, along with lots of berries, milk, honey, and yogurt, which mask the spinach taste. Very nutritious with lots of great nutrients from all that spinach. Perfect for your little one.

2. Sunshine Smoothie
Carrots are another one of those vegetables that are difficult to get your child to eat. As soon as my son sees me bring out the carrot sticks he immediately puts his nose up in the air. Even with carrots in this toddler smoothie recipe, your child will love it! Combined with pineapple, mango, and honey, as well as other great ingredients, it’ll be nice and sweet for your little one while getting them to eat those “yucky” carrots.
