Sensational Brownies

Sensational because they are awesome and sensational because there's flax seed, spinach and blueberries hiding in that batter. 

Both my girls are picky eaters and will eat sweets all day long, but gag at the thought of meat and veggies! Here's one way of introducing the dreaded spinach! Some notes about spinach; cooking spinach multiplies the nutritional value and eating spinach with a fruit (like blueberries) helps the body absorb all the nutrients. 

You'll find the recipe in the food section of this blog. The brownies are so good, you may want to double the recipe and bake in a 9x13x2-inch baking pan. Doubling the blueberry-spinach sauce will make it easier to puree.

The flavour may be too intense for some sensational kids (my son isn't a fan of the brownies), but your picky eaters will love it!

Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)

Sensory processing disorder (SPD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects at least one in twenty children. Children with SPD don't process or experience sensory information the way other typical children do; therfore, they don't behave the way other children do. They struggle to perform tasks that come easier for other children. Consequently they suffer a loss of quality in their social, personal, emotional and academic life.

The Sensory Processing Disorder Foundation is dedicated to continue their research into the knowledge and treatment of SPD, so that, as Lucy Jane Miller writes in her book "Sensations Kids", "the millions of sensational children currently "muddling through" daily life will enjoy the same hope and help that research and recognition already have bestowed on coutless other conditions that once baffled science and disrupted lives."
