Photos of more gorgeous, healthy kids drinking better nutrition

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Aug 16, 2009

Here are some photos of more gorgeous, healthy kids drinking better nutrition than 99% of kids in America get.   Greens have the most bioavailable calcium you can get–far better than cow milk (contrary to popular belief), unless you’re a baby cow, of course.

This is what their mother says:

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl,

Thought you would enjoy these pictures of my green smoothie kids.   Madison is 9 yrs old and Heath is 7.   We’ve been doing green smoothies for about a year and a half and everyone loves them.   I’ve taught the kids that strong muscles and bones come from the vitamins and minerals in fresh fruits & veggies, especially leafy greens.   They like to show me how much their muscles have grown after drinking a smoothie :).

In April this year, Madi fell off her bike and broke both bones in her left wrist.   I made sure she got her smoothies every day along with lots of salads with supper to make sure she got the proper nutrition so her bones could heal well.   Her final doctor appointment was six weeks after the cast came off and they did an x-ray to see how the bones had healed.   When I first saw the x-ray, I was astounded!   I wondered if they had x-rayed the right child!   I had seen the x-rays they took when the bones were broken and the difference between the first ones and the last ones were like night and day.   Sure, the broken bones healed, but the doctor told us that extra bone had actually grown around the fractures.   He said if she fell again in the same way that they wouldn’t break like that again.

Thanks, Robyn, for sharing your knowledge.   It truly is priceless!   And, as my kids would say, “Green Smoothies Rock!”
