Superfoods for Teens

Teens tend to be tired and stressed out from their hectic lives, and they don’t often take the time to refuel with nutritious food. To keep them healthy, teens need superfoods that can be eaten in quick and easy ways that adapt to their busy lifestyle. A green dragon smoothie is a perfect way for teens to get a boost of antioxidants while on the go. This is our favorite smoothie, which gets “Super Yums” from toddlers to teens.
