Breakfast Smoothies are a Great Way to Start the Day

When my daughter was 9 months old, she stopped growing. Literally no growth between 9 and 12 months. It was so scary, especially seeing the words “failure to thrive” listed as her official medical condition on her records. I have since changed doctors, but at that time, with my first child, my doctor did not offer a whole lot of helpful tips on how to get my daughter to gain weight.

So I learned to be my daughter’s advocate and to do my own research. I was really interested in nutrition but didn’t know very much about it. I had always liked Carnation Breakfast as a kid and even adult, so I decided to try and give that to my daughter with her milk to give her some extra nutrients.

My child had an underactive thyroid, the doctor discovered. Just like me. But putting her on the thyroid medication didn’t spark her growth at all. So I kept giving her the Carnation in her breakfast smoothies and since she liked it and ate healthy in every other way, I was happy.

Carnation Breakfast Essentials® Powder is:

  • An Easy solution for busy mornings
  • Kid friendly and can be easily prepared by kids
  • Available in a variety of Ready to drink shakes, Powders and Bars
  • Nutritious for kids, teens, and adults

I love to add Carnation to my breakfast smoothies for the rich chocolate flavor and to add some extra nutrients. Being hypothyroid, I can’t use protein powder, and Carnation has a good amount of protein in each serving. I also like to add a bit of oatmeal and spinach to the smoothie to keep my blood sugar stable throughout the morning.
