So I just got the Vitamix and I am starting to put Whey Protein into it. Is this ok for children? What is is made of? I read the ingredients but I wasn't sure. What is the best kind to buy nutrition wise? I have heard that it is good for you but I guess I should have researched more before I bought it. We have only used it the once. Anything you can tell me would be wonderful!
We do whey protien shakes. I only buy actual whey protein- so no soy protein mixed in. There are a lot of them out there that have tons of sugar though... I buy either Healthy for Life or Melaleuca (like the Melaleuca better since it is way cheaper). I sometimes give it to the kids- but not very much since it can plug anyone up.... and I don't want to deal with that :) I feed my kids a lot of eggs usually and feel that gives them plenty of additional protein.

I use this one - http://www.swansonvitamins.com/SWU477/ItemDetail It's very high quality, made from grassfed milk and is a great bargain.
