• Smoothie time
         Here's a sure-fire way to get kids excited about eating healthfully. Toss fruit, a few icecubes, yogurt, and juice into a blender, and mix until thick. With your supervision, your youngsters can even do it themselves! Try these combinations:
     
    Red & White - 4 straberries, 1 banana, 1 container low-fat vanilla yogurt, 1 cup orange juice
     
    Cool Blue - 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries, 1 container low-fat vanilla yogurt, 1 cup orange juice
     
    Just Peachy - 1 cut-up peach or 1 cup frozen peaches, 1 container low-fat peach yogurt, 1/4 cup orange juice
     
    Tip: Add a teaspoon of wheat bran (available at your grocery or health food store) to put fiber into your youngsters' treats.
