My DD has recently decided she wants me to buy smoothies rather than make them for her breakfast. I have a perfectly nice blender and make lovely homemade smoothes, but she only likes the innocent smoothies now apparently. Are they really what they say they are? As pure as what I make in my blender? I know I must sound totally neurotic now, but I.....well....I am!
sorry, what I meant by fresh was that fruit and vegetables are better when freshly peeled and chopped (ie more vitamins in home-made carrot batons, than shop-bought ones) and also as they are in see-through packaging there is vitamin leaching
but wouldn't stop me giving them to kids TBH - I think you can take these things too far
