"Sugar and spice and everything nice, that's what little girls are made of."
You'd think I never feed my children, by the way they act around perfect strangers. "I'm hungry," is a phrase they'll utter just minutes after a meal, once we've gone out to a public venue. You parents know the challenges of keeping nutritious, wholesome snacks on hand. Mine will crunch on carrots and still think ants on a log (celery sticks, peanut butter, raisins) are fun. But sometimes you need what we call at our house a "sweet treat." I'm thankful for more choices like Stonyfield's new YoKids Greek Organic Yogurt
that the company recently asked us to sample for free.
Greek yogurt offers more protein than a typical kids' yogurt, can be a great source of calcium, and is a filling snack. As a mom concerned about keeping my children's immune systems strong, I appreciate the abundant probiotics in Stonyfield's yogurt, along with the peace of mind about USDA Organic standards. No GMOs, no pesticide residue, no high fructose corn syrup -- those details matter to me.
This first-of-its-kind Greek yogurt made especially for kids comes in two smooth flavors that are mild enough for youngsters: strawberry and raspberry. My preschooler liked both, but picked strawberry as her favorite. The fruitiness is already blended into the yogurt, for a creamy, pudding-like texture. This new yogurt has become one of our new "sweet treat" choices when snack time rolls around.
