Does anyone have one of these? And do you find it helps to get fruit, veg & seeds into your family? I am thinking of investing.

We go through phases but I cant get the kids interested. I make smoothies for breakfast occasionally but that is it.

Love mine, use it everyday as I need shed loads of greens to up my calcium levels. No one else will go near it though. Just me.

We picked one up for £30 in lidl last week. It's been fab so far and if it does die in a year or less, at least we will have a good idea if it's worth investing more cash. Struggling a bit to find a more veggie based one as I don't want to just be drinking fruit (high sugar)

Oh I love ours! And gadgets normally end up being shoved in the cupboard never to see the light of day again.

We've got a small one so it just has 2 beakers and sits on the worktop taking up very little space. Frozen or fresh fruit, fruit juice, yoghurt, milk, oats etc - the possibilities are endless. Just put your ingredients in the beaker, put the lid on, turn the whole thing upside down, put it in the base, blitz for a minute or so, take the lid off and drink. Minimal cleaning. One gadget I really wouldn't want to be without!

blue carrot have you tried carrot based drinks? Nice with ginger and fennel or apple. My mum makes it so frequently it is called 'granny juice' in our family.

Love our nutribullet
My youngest DS rarely touches fruit/ veg so I put a few spoonfuls of whizzed up fruit/veg in his usual fruit juice drinks throughout the day-avocado, spinach, carrot etc along with fruit-so far he hasn't noticed it tastes different and by the end of the day he's had his 5 a day

We have one and go in phases but do use it quite a bit and the kids are interested - not in spinach green/ brown sludge but they do like yoghurt with strawberries etc and I plan to start hiding a few extras 😀 My friend puts chocolate protein powder in hers and says she can get a multitude of veg down the hatches this way (her kids I mean). My favorite is 1 apple, handful spinach, quarter avocado and some coconut milk or just water - really creamy and you would not guess there is spinach in it except that it is bright green! My husband uses the nutribullet for breakfast and puts nuts in plus various fruits and yogurt and doesn't get hungry later.

My kids love ours, it def helps up the fruit intake and sometimes I manage to include veg they'd never eat which is a bonus. Kids won't touch my very healthy ones though.
