But while it’s fine to include a few portions of fruit to improve the flavour, your juice should be made up of 80% green vegetables and 20% fruit if you really want your kids to reap the benefits. The amount of fructose in fruit means that can lead to weight gain in some instances, whereas leafy greens and other vegetables are nutritionally dense, offering all kinds of vitamins, minerals and nutrients that are proven to fight cancer, heart disease and other serious health problems.
Kids will love ingredients like apples, pears, pineapple and oranges, which will mask the taste of those important vegetables like kale, spinach, celery and carrots. Plus, you could even make delicious smoothies using a blender, mixing it up with coconut or almond milk for a smooth, creamy texture and delicious taste. During the summer months, why not add frozen bananas or ice and blend-up, freeze fresh juice into popsicles?
