Recipe for weight gain: Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Recipe for weight gain: Strawberry Banana Smoothie

If your child needs more calories, your healthcare provider may suggest adding more high-protein and high-fat foods and beverages.

Smoothies can be a great way to add more calories and protein to your child’s diet.

They can be served as part of a meal – with buttered toast for breakfast, for example – or as a mid-day or evening snack.

Ingredients:

½ cup whole milk
½ cup plain whole milk yogurt
½ cup frozen strawberries
1 banana
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
