Taste the rainbow of colors, flavors, and textures
in this healthy recipe
Our Rainbow Smoothie is a healthy snack for children with a visual impairment. The smooth texture is appealing to picky eaters. It can be sucked or sipped. You can dab a little on your child’s tray so they can experience it with all their senses.
Narrating the process of making the smoothie – from the trip to the grocery store to your kitchen where you assemble and blend the ingredients – gives a child who’s blind or visually impaired access to information about everyday routines.
With each step in this recipe, we provide sensory suggestions for you to try with your child. Enjoy the rainbow of colors, flavors, and textures in this recipe. It makes four medium smoothies or eight small ones.
