Three strategies to get your kids (or you) off junk food and how Vitashake has helped us do that.

Three strategies to get your kids (or you) off junk food and on to “healthy fast food”. 

 1. Start including vegetables with meals every single day, even if they won’t eat them at first, because visually seeing them regularly will help promote a more mindful approach to eating. But let’s face it, at first you might also have to find some sneaky ways to actually get the veggies into their stomachs. Try making zucchini bread or adding some greens into their morning smoothie. Getting those taste buds used to the flavor of vegetables even if they don’t know they’re eating them, gets you going in the right direction! 

 2. DIY the junk food. Instead of stocking your cabinets with processed desserts like a box of cookies or a bag of donuts, try making homemade versions you know you or your kids enjoy. If all your desserts are homemade, you’ll eat a lot less weird ingredients. And let’s face it, homemade cookies are much tastier than those prefab cookies you get on the grocery store shelf. 

3. When snack time comes around instead of having crackers, chips, and fruit snacks ready, try offering some fresh fruit and nuts. Some of my kids favorite nuts are pistachios and peanuts. And as far as fruit goes they love bananas, apples, and tangerines so we always have a bowl piled full of these fruits that are easy for them to get to

Another fun 🎉 way I get some healthy foods in my family... Sunrider’s Vitashake.

I make sure my kids and I start our day strong with Vitashake.   For less than the cost of a bag of potato chips, Vitashake contains a generous serving of Chinese plants and herbs and is also packed 14 vitamins and minerals. 

I love how the handy Vitashake packages are perfect for an on the go lifestyle.  Each packet of Vitashake is the perfect way to get natural antioxidants and vitamins without the hassle.

My daughter asks me to make her a shake every single day, sometimes twice a day.  She views it as more of a treat.  But the plants and herbs make her body happy too.  Here is her favorite Vitashake recipe.
