What about a ‘brekky shake’?

This ‘shake’ is everything-free (dairy, gluten, grain, egg, soy) but PACKED with nutrients for growing boys 🙂

The essentials are:
– about 120ml almond milk (boys intolerant to dairy but also tasty and with calcium)
– pear or banana
– probiotics
– CLS (ground chia, linseed and sunflower seeds)
– about 7 ‘activated’ almonds (soaked in water overnight to ‘activate’ their nutrients’)

scull! scull! chug! chug!

scull! scull! chug! chug!

Other choices determined by boys (all organic):
– carob powder
– dessicated coconut
– cinnamon
– blueberries
– raw honey

And occasionally olive leaf extract added to boost immunity and keep parasites at bay..

The names then become say a ‘berry ripe’ (carob, berries, coconut), ‘chocococobanana’ (carob, coconut, banana), ‘berrylicious’ (berries, coconut), ‘cinnabanana/pear’ (cinnamon, fruit).

Blend this all together and we have two excited (and quiet and still) boys who slurp it all up! This is on top of cereal to fill them up for the day.
We have gotten into this mostly to try and keep two boys with many food intolerances full. But it has become a fun way to add so many extra nutrients into their day (I’ll eventually fill you in on CLS and activated nuts, not to mention how we ended up organic but in the meantime, Feeding two growing boys has all the information you could want on this).

I now feel sad I used to feed Master 3 ‘just’ weetbix and milk!

About heidelightful

Hello friend! I am a paediatric speech pathologist and health coach. My vision is to create a world where parents can understand the real link between diet and their child's health and behaviour, and know how to create true health for their family. My two young, wonderful and sensitive sons both have food intolerances and have also taught me about my own, that I have never known about until now! Topics I have looked into for my own family's health and also from my role as a speech pathologist with children with picky eating are food intolerances, fussy eaters, creating healthy eaters and eating to prevent and ‘cure’ childhood issues such as ADHD, autism, eczema/skin issues, trouble sleeping, low immunity, frequent snot/ear infections and bedwetting, to name a few. I write many posts coming from being an exhausted mum trying to keep up with fussy boys who can only eat certain foods and also as a professional who has worked with other children with similar issues. I live on the Sunshine Coast in Australia with my husband and two boys and was previously an exchange student in Brazil! I hope to inspire you to help your child achieve their potential through health and well-being. Thanks for stopping by :) Heidi
