Do your kids eat enough fruit and vegetables?

If you answer 'yes' to this one, fair play, God bless and pat yourself on the back, mums. You are our hero. For the rest of us, there are smoothies.

If you, like me, are always on the hunt for new variations to tempt you littles with, here are three smoothies we are obsessed with in my house at the moment. Me because of the vegetable content, the kids because of the creative names and colourful paper straws I serve them with.
