    cheese and crackers
    fresh fruit
    fruit salad
    fresh veggies and dip
    toast with applesauce

  • My son LOVES me to give him yogurt with mini marshmallows mixed in it. I mean like 5 of them. He thinks it great! We also do go-gurt in the freezer to make frozen yogurt pops for him. peanut butter and apple sauce sandwich, apple sauce with 'fairy dust' (cinnamon) or apple slices wrapped in a kraft a single.

  • gogurt is not a healthful choice. Ingredients:


    BERRY BLUE BLAST INGREDIENTS: CULTURED PASTEURIZED GRADE A MILK, SUGAR, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, NONFAT MILK, MODIFIED CORN STARCH, KOSHER GELATIN, TRICALCIUM PHOSPHATE, POTASSIUM SORBATE ADDED TO MAINTAIN FRESHNESS, CARRAGEENAN, NATURAL AND ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, BLUE #1, RED #40.


     


    Ingredients include high fructose corn syrup. artificial flavorings and colorings, preservatives and excitotoxins.


    Yikes! Better to avoid processed foods altogether and give fruit, veggies, nuts and seeds.
