Notes

My 5-year-old son WILL NOT eat anything but chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese. I had to think quickly to come up with healthy recipes for kids, as I knew he would not get the nutrition he so desperately needed. As I stood in the Save-A-Lot produce department with the beautiful variety of fruits and veggies, I thought of the dusty blender I never use, and asked each of my 10 kids (I had all of them with me) to choose a fruit. When asked why, I said, "You will see." They each blended their own fruits to make one huge, fruity shake. I admired the expression on my 5-year-old’s face as each kid took their turn drinking a bit. I watched it turn from curious to wanting. I’ve learned that children at that age tend to do what other children do. Since this day, my son and I have sampled some of the fresh veggies and fruits Save-A-Lot has to offer. He pulls his toy jeep around in our back yard to me standing in an apron with a top hat saying "Welcome to the shake shop — what can I blend you today?" He will ask for some of the strangest combinations for his fruit smoothies, and Save-A-Lot is dependable enough to always have them all, so I can keep my fridge drawers full of exotic fruits and veggies!
