The all-time best breakfast for a busy toddlers who don’t want to sit still: my Berry Oat-y Toddler Breakfast Smoothie.
Lately my sweet angel baby is not always as innocent as she looks.
New trends with her include refusing to sleep in her crib, negotiating what she wants to eat and climbing out of her high chair during breakfast.
And I mean none of those things are really terrible. Most of the time her little stunts are cute. But I can definitely tell she is becoming a little person with an opinion and a preferred way of doing things.
Crazy how early this starts. A few months ago she couldn’t even walk and now she picks out what she wants to wear. Which is purple Halloween Minions shirt with a purple sweatshirt on top. Everyday. Same 3 items.
So every day we address something new. Today it’s this whole ants in her pants during breakfast time. She used to love breakfast and is now a crazy wiggle worm that doesn’t want to sit and eat.
So after a few days of little to no breakfast, I decided to try a breakfast smoothie.
Jackpot! It worked!
And of course, this is not any old smoothie. OH no, this is a nutrient, fiber, protein and veggie packed smoothie. Dang straight! If my kid is going to drink her breakfast she will be drinking a powerhouse.
Oats, blueberries, banana, milk, spinach, yogurt and chia seeds. What more could her little growing body need!
So this is life lately and even though it’s as nutty as always, I’m loving it.
