In each M-Powered Kids session we finish our class by making a nourishing whole foods smoothie TOGETHER!
When children are a part of creating their food they are much more likely to want to eat it. At the end of each of our Kids Classes we gather around a few different ingredients (mainly fruits and at least one veggie) and a blender and make the smoothie magic happen!
It may be true that you often hear from your child, "I don't like (insert fruit or vegetable here), I'm not going to eat that.", believe me, I hear it too! However, before we try each smoothie we teach the children the "body benefits" of each ingredient. Because when we know how a food positively affects our body we are making an informed decision to try it.
M-Powered Kids' goal is to create a foundation of healthy living that carries on throughout life. By finishing each active class of Zumba, Yoga and Pound with a wholesome smoothie we are replenishing our bodies and creating a balance of health on the inside that transforms into healthy living outside too.
Because, for our minds and bodies, what we put in there directly affects what we put out there.
children choose from an assortment of fruits and veggies to create a fun and delicious skewer of vitamins.
From peeling and coring to dicing and blending, the children are involved in all the steps of this process.
each child combines the ingredients in their individual bowl and then watches as the instructor cooks the dough and sizzles up the cheese for this fan favourite.
children sprinkle an assortment of toppings on their slices of apple to create a delicious and nutritious alternative to a baked cookie.
using fruits, vegetables, nut/seed butter, cream cheese (or an alternative) and toothpicks, children create their own works of art that they are proud to eat.
