Ok so I make fruit smoothies for breakfast in the morning sometimes. NOT as a weightloss tool. Just because dd and I enjoy them.
Anyway my question is my dd is usually stilly hungry after her smoothie. And with all that fruit its a lot of "sugar" so never know what else to give heR with it. Any ideas??

I should say she will be 3 in two months and is not trying to lose weight but I want her to enjoy healthy foods :)

Maybe some bacon and eggs?  I try to give my kids fruit, "bread" (cereal or toast or something), and some kind of protein with breakfast but usually they just eat the "bread" and fruit :P

oooooooooooh or homemade granola.  my younger son likes that.  and so do i ;)

An egg (or 2).  A couple slices of bacon, sausage, or other meat.  Half an avocado.  A fist size serving of oily nuts like walnuts, pecans, or cashews.  Tuna, chicken, or egg salad.  Basically a nice piece of protein to go along with the carbs.  :-)

When we do smoothies in the mornings, my dd usually has a piece of toast w/pb as well.

Protein and healthy fats with all those carbs is a must; they'll keep her full for sure!

I agree with previous posters! Definitely some protein to go along with the shake because it will help keep her full longer! Do you mix the shakes with milk? Maybe use some greek yogurt in the shake if you don't already. Greek yogurt has twice the amount of protein in it than regular yogurt. Hope that helps :)
