Kids sure seem to have a sweet tooth. There’s even scientific evidence that it’s built into their young bodies from birth to crave something sweet. So it makes sense that at the end of a long day of hitting the books and filling their heads, they want something to fill their tummies but also treat their taste buds. Biscuits, sugary drinks and sweets may do the trick on the tongue, but these items are full of empty calories that do nothing for their growing bodies. The solution? A good, simple fruit-based yoghurt filled with calcium and live lactic cultures for a healthier choice with that sweet flavour that appeals to kids‘ tastes and hunger.
If you want to fancy it up, pop the yoghurt into an ice lolly mould, freeze overnight and you’ve got a frozen treat that your kids will have no idea is actually good for them! You can also pipe the yoghurt onto a baking tray and put in the freezer for bite-sized yoghurt snacks. For play dates, you can put fresh fruit onto wooden skewers with a side of yoghurt dipping sauce for a fun and interactive snack that’ll be a big hit with the little ones.
Of course, you can always just hand over a spoon and a tub of their favourite flavour and let them slurp up the deliciousness au naturel. Yoghurt is a versatile and mindful go-to way to fuel your children until mealtime.
