At the British Early Years Centre, Bangkok we have been designing and making vegetable smoothies and juices with the children for a few years now as part of their healthy eating topic. Here is a great post from Random Recycling with some lovely recipes for smoothies that have a good balance of healthy greens vs sweeter fruits. We like that no additional sugar is added since there is already more than plenty in the fruit.
