How to get your 5 a day with a Magimix food processor

Kids 5 a day
Getting your kids to eat fruit and vegetables can sometimes be a struggle. Here are a few useful tips!
Spark their curiosity: take them to the market to introduce them to different types of fruit and vegetables. Get them to taste them, touch them or guess their identity (with or without a blindfold). If they don’t like something, don’t force them. Instead, either try serving it in a different way (e.g. cooked, blended or combined with another ingredient) or else wait a few months (or even years!) Before introducing it again.
The “mystery smoothie”: the idea here is to mix fruit and vegetables together (e.g. Popeye’s potion, p.30). Kids generally like the sweet taste and surprising colour. The one who identifies all the ingredients first is the winner! Ideal at breakfast time, to get the day off to a flying start, as well as at teatime, to recharge those flagging batteries!
“I made it all by myself!*”: encourage your kids to invent their own combinations. It’s a good way of using up surplus fruit and vegetables, and can give them a real sense of pride. Every season brings fresh opportunities for their imagination to run free. What’s more, the end result is full of natural goodness, with no preservatives or additives… Straws: not strictly necessary, but far more fun!
“Veg art”: everything tastes so much better if it’s made to look good! If they are imaginatively presented, chopped raw vegetables can really whet kids’ appetites! You could even have a competition!
Fruit lollipops: help your kids to make juices or smoothies and fill lollipop moulds with them, perhaps adding some tiny pieces of fruit and a drop of cane syrup if the mixtures are not sweet enough. Freeze the lollipops for 24 hours.
