                Yogurt: Parfait Recipes

Yogurt

Getting plenty of good bacteria, also known as probiotics, is key to keeping little stomachs happy and healthy, and yogurt is a great source of this bacteria. Limit sugary versions aimed at kids because these are often lower in protein and good bacteria. Instead, choose plain nonfat or low-fat yogurt or Greek yogurt and dress them up with a spoonful of honey and sprinkling of fresh fruit. Look for the words “live and active cultures” on the carton to ensure that the yogurt has plenty of beneficial bacteria.  Don’t forget too that a cup of yogurt counts towards your child’s daily dairy servings. Most yogurts actually have more calcium than a cup of milk.

Kids will love to assemble their own Blueberry and Maple-Pecan Parfaits.

 I love yogurt!  My kids can't eat it though because of dairy allergies.  Sad.

I can't eat it any more (allergic to dairy), but the kids love it. We buy unflavored Greek yogurt and sweeten it with honey and/or berries

I am wondering if i froze it whether dd would realise it isnt ice cream.  She has eaten frozen yogurt at the ice cream store before and thought that was ice cream.
