Raising a heart healthy kid starts every morning with a nutritious breakfast to prepare a growing body for the day ahead. With everything else there is to worry about, wouldn’t it be nice to know that you’ve got their morning meal covered with some terrific and delicious ideas.

Instead of sugary sodas and pure fruit juices (which also contain a lot of sugar), the smoothie recipes here contain far fewer simple carbohydrates. And if your child is picky about fruits, what better way to disguise them than in a cool smoothie?
