Our kids are extremely active. Anyone have recipes that are low in sugar but high in flavor?

I would love to feed our kids somehting tasty and delicious but at the same time low in sugar. Sugar is not necesarily a bad thing but I want to be able to feed these kids without worrying that they will be hyper-active. I am a big fan of smoothies and oatmeal. Here are my top two. 

Banana Oatmeal Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 2   whole Chiquita Bananas (best with brown flecks on peel)
  • 2   cups Ice
  • 1/3   cup Yogurt - preferably Greek yogurt flavored with honey
  • 1/2   cup Cooked oatmeal
  • 1/3   cup Almond

Strawberry Oatmeal Smoothie

Ingredients

  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 12 cup rolled oats
  • banana (broken into chunks)
  • 14 strawberries (frozen)
  • 12 tsp vanilla extract
