5 Fun Ways for Kids to Enjoy Yogurt

Yogurt Dip

When it comes to snacks, it can be easy to fall into the pre-packaged trap. Luckily, there is one ingredient that stands alone or can be used to make fun and healthy treats: yogurt!

My kids love yogurt. It has great health benefits and it’s tasty, too! It has ‘good bacteria’ which helps aid in digestion, and is a good source of calcium.

Yogurt is incredibly versatile and can be used in many recipes, from main dishes to desserts. Here are five simple ways for kids to enjoy yogurt!

 

Yogurt Tubes

  1. Use yogurt plain as a dip for fruit, pretzels or crackers.
  2. When you make fruit smoothies, add 4 ounces of yogurt to make them extra creamy and delicious!
  3. Make a parfait by layering yogurt with cereal, granola or fruit.
  4. Core out strawberries, pipe in yogurt and serve for individual treats!
  5. Freeze yogurt tubes for a creamy, frozen treat. Serve them at breakfast and kids will feel like they’re eating ice cream!
