Hydrating Smoothie

Hydrating Smoothie

This smoothie is super refreshing and hydrating, making it perfect for those sick days. Strawberries and watermelon have a high water content and are therefore a fantastic way to help sick toddlers “eat water” and amp up fluid intake.

⁠I’ve also added honey for its antibacterial properties and antimicrobial compounds to suppress coughs and boost the immune system. 🍯 Note: no honey for under 1’s. 🍯

Lemon & strawberries are loaded with vitamin C to fight colds and kefir contains plenty of good for your gut bacteria to naturally support the immune system.
