Your kids will love smoothies - even green ones!
One thing I ALWAYS talk about at live presentations is smoothies. Smoothies are one of the best tools in your "add good nutrition" learning toolkit - particularly when you want to get kale in. They’re: Quick, easy, delicious, nutritious, easy to clean up, and kids love them!
I like going green. However, spinach, swiss chard, and certain other greens can be very high in oxalate. Not only have high oxalates been shown to be a problem in autism,oxalates also inhibit mineral absorption so you will not be able to access the wonderful and important minerals in the smoothie, such as calcium, magnesium, zinc and iron. I suggest adding kale (particularly lacinato kale which is the kale lowest in oxalates). I include some frozen fruit and maybe a spot of honey or a couple dates if the berries are a bit too sour. Add water or fresh pressed vegetable juice, or ice if you wish - but go easy of adding extra fruit juice (sugar!).
