Smoothies for kids are a creative way to introduce a variety of fruits, vegetables, and superfoods into a child's diet while disguising them as a treat. From vibrant berries to hidden veggies, smoothies have the power to transform mealtime battles easily. 

Below we've pulled together 3 of our favourite smoothie recipes, directly from Subo.  The Subo is a food bottle like no other.  As your child sucks, the food moves up the subo, making independent eating easier.
