Picky eating phase is such a stressful stage for all parents. All parents worry about what their children eat and don't eat. However, it's important to strike a balance between encouraging children to listen to their own body cues and explore their preferences, and ensuring that they are being exposed to a variety of foods and building a healthful relationship with food as they get older. 

They need their own time and space to practice trying new foods. Remember, never instill fear and avoid power struggles during meal times. 

Smoothie is one of the best alternatives as it's attractive, and easy to make (well you just need to mix everything and blend!) which you can easily invite your child to be involved in.

It’s important to have calorie-dense meals to meet their energy requirements. Here are some simple smoothie recipes that pack with nutrients yet so easy to make:


Choco Loco
(Packed with antioxidants from cocoa powder, potassium and energy from bananas, and probiotic from yoghurt. Topped with granola and coconut flakes for crunchy textures and rich protein sources.)


  1. 2 Frozen banana
  2. 2 tsp Cocoa powder
  3. 1 tsp Honey
  4. 3 tbsp Yoghurt

(Toppings: Sliced banana, Coconut flakes, Granola)


Pinky Berry

(A pretty looking smoothie that is filled with high antioxidants and vitamin C from berries. Contain dairy milk to give a boost of calcium supply to support growth.)


  1. Frozen Dragon Fruit
  2. Frozen Strawberry
  3. Fresh or Full cream milk

(Toppings: Blackcurrant, Coconut flakes, Sunflower seeds)


Green Tropical
(The trickiest smoothie to indulge greens in your kid’s meal. Both spinach and chia seeds are high in fiber that can help in constipation problems. Other than that, they are rich in iron, vitamin K and also protein. And almonds are one of the best brain foods!)


  1. Frozen mango
  2. Frozen banana
  3. Spinach
  4. Fresh or Full cream milk

(Toppings: Sliced Banana, Coconut flakes, Chia seed)
