For many, Thanksgiving marks the start of the holiday season. As your family and friends gather to celebrate, consider these delightful kid-friendly drink options.

Pumpkin Smoothies: Take advantage of the season’s star ingredient by whipping up nutritious pumpkin smoothies. Blend canned pumpkin puree with yogurt, a banana, and a sprinkle of pumpkin spice for a creamy and delicious treat. This smoothie is an excellent source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals that are essential for growing bodies.

Apple Spice: This is one our most popular fall-inspired recipes. It calls for only a few ingredients and costs about $0.50 per serving. Watch our own dietitian and chef Brandy Kuebler demonstrate how easy it is to prepare.

Herbal Teas: Herbal teas can be a comforting option when the weather changes. Opt for caffeine-free options like fruit-flavored or peppermint tea. Before serving hot tea to kids, check the temperature to be sure it doesn’t burn their mouth.

Not only will these healthy drinks contribute to a festive atmosphere, but they’ll also ensure that kids stay hydrated throughout the holiday season.
