I recently purchased these Nutra Organics children’s superfood powders from Five Vegans online shop for my children to try, especially now that they are both back to school, I wanted to find something more wholefood based to help give their immune systems a bit of a boost. So far, they like both flavours and haven’t noticed any distinct change in taste when added to their food and drinks.
The C Berry Blast contains mango powder, acai berry powder, goji berry powder, blueberry powder, cranberry powder, raspberry powder, rosehip, seabuckthorn and camu camu. Recommended for 12+ months.
Vital Veggie Power contains pumpkin, carrot, apple, mango, tomato, broccoli, barley grass, wheatgrass, spirulina, alfalfa, chlorella, kelp and psyllium powder. Recommended for 12+ months.
Here is two of my children’s favourite lunch box items (with the addition of these wholefood powders)
- Miss 8’s daily school smoothies;
- smoothie items of choice (Miss 8 added watermelon, mango, blueberries, strawberries, spinach and a heaped teaspoon of the Nutra Organics Vital Veggie powder (her favourite powder). Once blended, pop into a reusable smoothie pouch and freeze overnight for school the next day. Miss 8 puts her lunchbox and smoothie pouch in a small esky to keep cool. She tends to drink her smoothie at snack time so it’s still a bit icy.
- Blender- Miss 8 currently uses our portable travel blender (USB charged) to make her own smoothies. We usually use a magic bullet but the motor recently stopped working. I find small sized blenders a great size for children to make their own drinks.
- Re-usable silicone food pouch- My squeeze food pouch- see HERE. We have been using ours for three years now. You can also use these pouches to store baby or toddler purees (recommended use from 6+ months) and yoghurt etc.
2. Mr 6’s mixed berry chia seed jam- see previous post on how to make chia seed jam HERE. Mr 6 likes to have mixed chia berry jam approx two times a week. He likes to eat it as is, with crackers or added to granola, porridge, yoghurt etc. Adding 1-2 teaspoons to a jar of already made mixed berry chia jam is an easy way to add nutrients without the change in taste being noticeable.
