Cooper loves smoothies and it is a great way off making sure he has lots of fruit every day. He is now two and still picky over fruit. He will eat a banana, but will only pick at blueberries, grapes and clementines. Most other fruit he just completely refuses. He never refuses a smoothie.
We are doing well today with our fruit count. Cooper has had half a banana, a handful of raisins and half a pear in his porridge and 4 strawberries, half a banana and half a pear in his smoothie.
