So thinking about Get Up & Go Smoothies ...
Milk/yogurt are excellent sources of calcium, and good sources of vitamin D for strong teeth and bones. They are also good sources of protein.
Bananas are a nutritious and filling fruit, providing an excellent source of potassium (good for blood pressure regulation) and vitamin B6, as well as being a source of fibre.
Wheat Biscuits are high in fibre and have a number of vitamins and minerals (including iron) added to them. They are low in fat, sugar and salt.

A traffic light system is used on nutrition labels to make it easier to see which foods and drinks are lower in calories, fat, sugar and salt. Try and choose more ‘greens’ and ‘ambers’ and fewer ‘reds’, and stick to smaller portions of ‘reds’.
Just because a recipe or a food has a red traffic light doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat it. Understanding why a food or recipe might have a red light can be helpful. For example oily fish is high in total fat and so any recipe containing oily fish is likely to be ‘red’ for fat. But it is recommended that we eat oily fish at least once a week because the type of fat it contains is beneficial for our health.
% Reference Intakes are also shown. Reference Intakes are guidelines about the approximate amount of particular nutrients and energy required for a healthy diet (based on an average-sized woman doing an average amount of physical activity). Most children will require less than these Reference Intakes. The contribution of one serving of a food or drink to the Reference Intake for each nutrient is expressed as a percentage.
