Sofie Aldiss whisks up a smoothie

Growing children need fat in their diet, including saturated fat. It is just a matter of keeping tabs on the source and ensuring that they don't have too much of it. These smoothies are packed full of calcium from the milk, yoghurt and dried fruit, soluble fibre and slow-release carbohydrates, not to mention vitamins A and C.
