Subject: Nancy solves the problem of her son’s green smoothie making him weird!

Nancy's sonDear GreenSmoothieGirl: I spoke with you in Houston after your delightful class last month. I shared with you the story of my young son, who asked me not to make him green smoothies any more because the kids were making fun of him. You asked me to write up the story for you and include a picture, so here it is!

My six-year old came home from school and announced that I could no longer put green smoothies in his lunch. He said that the kids were saying his drink looked “gross.”

Nancy's daughterI said, “We’ll take care of that!” I sent an email to to his teacher the following day. Since parents are asked to take turns bringing in the snack for school, I asked her if I could demonstrate making green smoothies in the classroom when it was my turn to provide the snack. The teacher was supportive of the idea.

Our green smoothie demonstration was a big hit! The kids loved watching what I put in the blender and showing that they were “daring” enough to drink spinach and other fruits and vegetables. To their pleasant surprise, they loved it! When I asked my son the following day what the kids said about his smoothie, he responded, “It’s cool.”

  1. THIS is a fantastic testimony! Love how your teacher embraced you coming in for a demo too. I love to give friends a green smoothie or green juice and watch the hesitation before they drink and then the change of expression once they realize it really tastes good! Even got my dad to do this 2 months ago while he was visiting from Texas. He is coming again for a week in December!! Gonna get some goodies in his system that is for sure

    Yay! I think more than half the battle is education.
