 Is a smoothie better for you?

It contains   all of the fruit or vegetable.

Contains more fibre.


It can be the same as eating the whole
fruit – but no chewing !!!! or biting.

A glass of smoothie can be counted as
one of your five daily recommended
fruit and vegetable portions.
How do you make smoothies?


In their simplest form.


Take some fruit or vegetables?

Possible further investigations

Investigate different   types of milks and yogurts available on the market.

Investigate innovative milk producers such as Calonwen, a co-operative of
farmers in south west Wales producing organic milks packaged using an innovative
eco pak. www.calonwen.com




The website is very informative about life on a farm, organic farming and other
produces they produce.
