Greek yogurt bowls
Don’t you just love making something healthy that the kids will actually eat? I think cute dishes like these pig yogurt bowls are so much fun, but they are usually so time-consuming. Ain’t nobody got time to spend 30 minutes a plate for 7 kids. But this cutie is super quick and easy. That’s why I love it.
Greek yogurt is full of protein and nutrients. It makes a great healthy breakfast or snack. Yogurt is good for kids and adults, so make yourself one too. And the best part about it is that most kids actually love it.
But most commercially sweetened yogurt has too much sugar to be creditable on the food program. That’s where the jam comes in. You can mix a little honey, maple syrup, jam, or whatever you have into the yogurt and give the kids less sugar than they would get in a Gogurt or other prepared sweetened yogurt product. And you can use as little or as much as you want.
Gogurt and other presweetened yogurts are also full of other chemicals too. So think about that before you make your choice.
If you want to find out more about already sweetened creditable yogurts, check out this post about meats and meat alternates. There is even a calculator to tell you if it qualifies for the food program.
But if you want to know exactly what’s going into your kid’s yogurt, you can use the jam method to make your own. And I’ll let you in on a little secret too. It’s yummier!
