My son's Cub Scout den meeting is at our house Tuesday evening. I want to serve a healthy snacks but not boring. I had the idea of doing a yogurt bar. I would have regular and Greek vanilla yogurt. The boys could then add granola, honey, diced apples, strawberries, or crushed Oreos.

Does this sound like a good idea or a bad idea. Would you let your kids eat it? Would they want to eat it? Any topping suggestions?

Update: the meeting was last night and we did the yogurt bar. It was a huge success! I bought two big containers of Greek and one regular. We finished all of it and even dipped into my personal stash. We has granola, strawberries, sliced apples and crushed Oreos. Even the parents made a "sundae"

I think it might be a good idea for a group of ladies.  It might work for a group of young boys.  But then, some may not care for yogurt.

 I would double check with the scout leader to make sure no body has allergies for milk, etc.  My girls would have loved a snack like this.  But my boys wouldn't have like this.

I think it's a good idea. Sounds yummy. My kids have always liked yogurt. If there are boys who don't like yogurt, you could offer them just the fruit and cookies.

My kids would love it.  Additional toppings could be sliced bananas, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, diced mangoes, diced kiwi, diced pineapples, and my kids' all time favorite Dole's mandarin oranges.
