Health

My youngest son is 13, a teenager going through a growth spurt. He enjoys playing sports, particularly football – the American football, not soccer. It’s hard on his body. He’s already had a few injuries but that doesn’t stop him. No siree bob. He’ll get back up and run back out!

He may not know his limits but I do. So, I want to make sure he gets the vitamins and minerals he needs for strong bones and good health.  It’s not always easy to get him to eat 3 balanced meals, particularly in the mornings when we’re rushing to get out of the house for school. Thankfully, he likes the taste of Nestlé Nido Kinder 1+, which is powdered milk that contains 13 vitamins and minerals.

It’s perfect for making smoothies (and hiding veggies!). One of his favorites, and mine, is shown below. Super easy and packed with vitamins and minerals that will keep his body and mind strong and healthy. Hope you like it as well!

Sabroso Saturday Recipe: Beefsteak with Olives (Bistec con Aceitunas)

Organic Home Remedy Recipe for Sore Throats and Colds
