Most parents and educators eventually come across picky eaters. Sometimes children are picky about foods because they don’t like the taste, texture and/or appearance of a particular item. Other times they just may be picky because they haven’t been exposed to many different foods or meals. Either way it goes, the NutriBullet may be a good option.
- You are able to blend the ingredients in a way where certain things are not tasted. For example, if you have a child who does not like the taste of broccoli, you can still put broccoli in without it being tasted.
- With the NutriBullet textures are broken down. This is good for those with texture sensitivities and preferences. The NutriBullet is not a juicer, so there will still be a pulpy texture, but the texture may be broken down and changed.
- It is also great for cooking projects with young children. The NutriBullet can be used for health/meal projects in the classroom as well as at home. Children are able to see the ingredients go in whole, get blended into one, and then are able to taste the final product.
- The NutriBullet also has an advantage when it comes to health. Different than blenders and juicers, the NutriBullet is designed to extract ingredients. This means it is meant to thoroughly break the ingredients down to their most healthy and nutritious state.
- This device is very simple to use and clean. This is important when working with children because we all know how tough it gets when children are required to wait for long periods of time. The NutriBullet also comes with a user guide.
- The NutriBullet comes with a recipe book full of delicious ideas.
- A disadvantage of the NutriBullet is that the blends tend to be pulpy. Although it may be difficult for those who are sensitive to textures, chunks and pulp, this is quite necessary because that is where most of the nutrients lie.
Overall, the NutriBullet is a great product and gets 4 stars from me as it applies to Early Childhood.
