What is Mavella and why do my kids need it?

If I am honest, a few months ago I would have told you that I  thought I was doing ok with my kids fruit and veg intake. I am a Thermomix owner and veggie smuggler from way back. I make Choc Zucchini Muffins for school, always add veggies into my spag bol and make a point of serving fruit and veg where I can.

As I  looked over the Healthy Kids website however, I quickly realised that my boys were getting nowhere near enough fruit and veg to support their growing bodies, developing brains or immune system.

By the time a child is 4-8 years old they need 1.5 servings of fruit and 4.5 servings of veggies … ekkkk!

Double eeeekk when I found out a serving of fruit is 150g and a single serving of veg is 75g (around half a cup of veg or 1 cup of salad veg).

I was therefore thrilled when I was sent one of each of the following from Mavella Superfoods and more thrilled when we were able to offer you 10% off these truly amazing products!!

Body Boost (5 fruit and 1 veg, added Vitamins A, B’s, C, Calcium, Iron, Essential Amino Acids, Organic Pea and Organic Rice Protein)

Immune Boost (Prebiotics and Probiotics, 9 Super Berries high in antioxidants, 1 tsp = 50g fresh berries)

Veggie Boost (Contains 8 Vegetables and 5 Superfoods including Wheatgrass, Kale and Spirulina as well as all 9 essential amino acids)

Brain Boost (Omega-3, Flaxseed, Chia, Prebiotics and Probiotics, Vitamins and Calcium)

Mavella was created by two very clever Aussie mums, Jamie and Cheryl, who like most parents struggled with their children (Maverick and Ella = Mavella) eating enough fruit and veg. So they put their heads together and have come up with four delicious powders that make this job oh so easy. Just add to milk or water and you have a delicious and healthy drink that is perfect for your little rascals and perfectly easy for you.

The Mavella range is made from real Australian superfoods, vitamins and minerals. The raw fruit and veg undergo a unique process, locking in both the potency and natural colours for years. The fruit and veges are processed at low temperatures so they can have up to 18 times more concentrated nutrition of raw ingredients,  making them “the most powerful and concentrated goodness per teaspoon on the market” WOW!

Add to this that there are no added nasties or sugar and that all four products have received an Australian Health Star Rating of between 4.5 and 5 and we have before us some very impressive products. Blogs such as this one by the Supplement Police, get down into the nitty gritty of the nutritional side of things, and they too have been impressed. Did the superfoods past the toughest taste test though? You betcha! These little beauties are 100% kid approved.

Tuna Bake with Veggie Boost

GF*/EF/NF

Gluten Free* – Use a GF pasta or replace with 2-3 potatoes. Use a GF plain/all purpose flour and GF bread when making your breadcrumbs.

My kids really love the crunch of the breadcrumbs, so I always do a really good layer.

You can use a combination of peas and corn if you prefer.

Ingredients

250g shell pasta
2 slices of bread
110g parmesan, cubed
1/2 handful of parsley
200g tasty cheese, cubed
1 onion, quartered
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1 stick of celery, roughly chopped
40g butter
2 tsp curry powder (we like 2 heaped tsp)
3 tsp Mavella Veggie Boost Powder
20g plain/all purpose flour
350g milk
200g frozen corn
425g tin of tuna, liquid half drained
Salt and pepper, to taste

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Follow packet instructions and cook pasta. Once ready, drain, rinse under hot water and place into your ThermoSever or similar to keep warm.
  3. Rip the bread roughly as it goes into the bowl and blitz for 2 secs/speed 10. Set aside.
  4. Place 80g of the Parmesan into the bowl along with the parsley and grate 5 secs/speed 8. Add 100g of the tasty cheese to the bowl and grate for a further 3 secs/speed 8. Set this ‘hulk’ cheese aside.
  5. Place the remaining parmesan and tasty cheese in the bowl and grate for 3 secs/speed 8. Set aside for the topping.
  6. Add the onion, garlic and celery stick to the bowl and chop for 3 secs/speed 5. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  7. Add the butter, curry powder and Veggie Boost powder and cook for 5 mins/100 degrees/speed 0.5.
  8. To the mixture add flour, milk and mix for 4 secs/speed 4 and then cook for 6 mins/80 degrees/speed 1/ REVERSE.
  9. Add the frozen corn and cook for an additional 5 mins/80 degrees/speed 1/ REVERSE.
  10. Add the half drained tuna, ‘hulk’ cheese from earlier along with salt and pepper and mix for 10 secs/speed 1/REVERSE, then cook for 3 mins/80 degrees/speed1/REVERSE.
  11. Meanwhile, tip the pasta into a shallow oven-safe dish and spread evenly across the base. Once ready pour the tuna mixture over the pasta, spreading as evenly as possible and mix the pasta through the sauce. Top with the second bowl of cheese and then the breadcrumbs.
  12. Place into a fan forced oven for 20-25 mins.
