children under 5 years, make with whole milk), sliced 2 ripe bananas, 1
cup fresh orange juice and a dash of vanilla. Beat until the mixture is creamy and delicious. Place

from your child and provide a nutritious snack as well).
- Cheese Supersanduíche
two large slices of bread (like Alentejo, mixing) with a thin layer of
cream cheese and place a large leaf of lettuce on each slice. Place 3 slices of cheese on top of the Flemish and add the bread slices. Break into four parts (most kids like to introduce you to mini-sandwiches!).
- Scrambled eggs special
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a nonstick skillet and add 2 eggs, beaten him. When you begin to coagulate, add 2 tablespoons of cream cheese, ½ cup of skimmed milk and 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds. Stir until it is ready. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cut in half (across) a banana stand, and insert a stick of ice cream at each end of cut banana. Dip each banana in half-skimmed milk and then "pass it" (like a breaded) with wheat germ. Wrap each half in foil and freeze. Within an hour are cold and delicious.
- Fresh fruit juices of various fruits
Try mixing fruit and vegetables:
2 oranges, 4 strawberries and 1 carrot
½ ripe mango, 1 green apple, 1 cup water
2 oranges, 2 carrots ½ beet and
1 peach, 1 slice of watermelon and two plums
This summer, replace all the sodas and colas by these natural fruit juices (or invent other combinations).
Squeeze the juice from the oranges and other fruits and vegetables should also be used pulp (knock everything in the blender). You can add water. Serve in tall glasses with straws and colorful.
Instead of candy and other goodies, keep the hands of smaller, dried
fruits (apricots, bananas, raisins, prunes, etc..), Which are sweet as
candy, but provide, in addition to sugar, vitamin A and calcium. Do not confuse dried fruit with candied fruit.
The fruits and vegetables such as spinach, kale, broccoli, green beans,
cauliflower and others, are not the ideal meal for any (!) Child. You can however, saute these vegetables with a little olive oil, onion and garlic, and add grated cheese.

- Spring Salad
Cut into very thin julienne, tender lettuce, red cabbage and white cabbage. Add grated carrots 3. Mix well and season with olive oil and vinegar. If
this flavor is not well accepted, make a sauce with 1 tablespoon of
mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons cheese, 1 tablespoon yogurt and 1 tablespoon
of tomato paste. Stir well until a homogeneous sauce and toss the salad.
