Brain Booster Smoothie with Blueberries Recipe (Makes 4 kid-sized servings or 2 grown-up servings)
2 cups frozen blueberries
2 cups grape juice
1/4 cup almond butter or almonds
2 tablespoons wheat germ
1 banana (optional)

The flavor reminds me of an old-fashioned peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It's sweet from the grape juice, tart from the blueberries and has a little crunch from the almonds and wheat germ. If your kids prefer a little more sweetness, try adding a banana.

Wendy has a great idea to help solve the snack time woes: a snack chart! Instead of standing with the pantry or fridge doors open, and you having to recite a list of foods, the kids can just point to what they want.
