Imagine you’re back in grade school (a dream we have daily), and you’re welcomed with a pop quiz; of course... You roll your eyes until you discover this pop quiz is about helping you make better, healthier decisions about your eating habits. You’re provided with a blender, fruits & veggies, and your taste buds to make a tasty smoothie that consists of 50% vegetables and 50% fruit. Think you could do it? Sounds like a class we needed when we first got into the smoothie game…
Dreaming aside, our friends over at NutriBullet have made this class possible for select schools nation wide through NutriBullet University; a 90-day hands-on education and healthy eating experience tailored specifically for kids. In an effort to combat the increasing number of child obesity, diabetes and behavioral problems directly correlated to processed foods and poor diet, NutriBullet has made it possible for children to learn the basic fundamentals to be able to choose healthier eating habits. A class our future generation so desperately needs— we knew we had to get involved.
We decided it was a must that these kids experience the goodness of a sugar-free, organic, colorful super fruit that can be blended with just about anything. So, we did what we do best, and sent our dragon fruit smoothie packs to NutriBullet to work their magic. Kid’s will learn the difference between fresh and frozen fruits (like our smoothie packs), and how to make nutritious smoothies in lieu of empty treats like cereal and pop tarts.
As the program continues throughout the year, we’ll be getting and sharing updates & photos of how the kids progress through the 90-day program. We’re excited to see the progression and creativity that NutriBullet University will bring to these schools and children. We can’t wait to see what recipes they create!
A massive thank you to the folks over at NutriBullet and NutriBullet University for putting together such an incredible program and allowing us to be a part of it!
