Back to school can be a very stressful time for parents. There are daily battles with getting your children showered, dressed, and out the door with their school work. That can leave very little time for them to eat a nutritious breakfast. Smoothies are a great option for rushed mornings. Throw all of the ingredients in the blender and you’re set. We came up with three different flavored smoothies and calculated the calories and protein of each. It is very important for children to get proper protein, especially in the morning. What we found was that the easiest way to incorporate protein into a smoothie is through yogurt. Non-fat Greek yogurt is thick and packed with a ton of protein. The yogurt will also add a rich creamy texture to the smoothie that your kids will love. For a child who is lactose intolerant or allergic to  milk, replace this with a soy based protein powder.
