Some children love yogurt, some don’t. It’s a matter of texture: some kids hate little chunks, others hate smooth textures. If your child doesn't like yogurt, ask questions to learn why and you will know how to develop their taste for it. Here are a few recipes that make yogurt turn into something else:

Yogurt pops

Make those with your children and I guarantee they will at least taste it:

  • Recycled yogurt containers and popsicle sticks
  • Fruit of your choice
  • Yogurt of your choice, equal proportion with the fruit
Blend everything together and pour in the yogurt container and put the popsicle stick in the middle. Freeze and enjoy! You can try alternating flavors and colors: you are making rainbow pops!

Yogurt smoothies for 4
  • 1 cup of strawberries
  • 1 banana
  • 15 ml (1 Tbsp) of honey
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of yogurt
  • 1 cup of juice, flavor of your choice
All blend in blender and enjoy!
Adjust quantity of liquid to your taste. Everybody is different!

Breakfast in bed yogurt breakfast cup
(great recipe when you child wants to help making “breakfast in bed” to mommy or daddy!)
  • Two grapefruits
  • Your favorite cereal
  • Dried fruits and nuts of your choice
  • Honey
Cut the grapefruit in half and remove the pieces as you would normally do. Put the pieces in a bowl while you clean up the inside of the grapefruit to make a bowl. Then leave the rest of the recipe to your child, they can do the rest and will feel proud. They just have to mix the cereal with the yogurt, put it in the grapefruit bowl, and sprinkle the dried fruit and nuts on top and bring to the happy parent who will greatly appreciate this little appetizer. Served with a poached egg and toast will decrease your chance of ending up cooking yourself some bacon. You don’t want to disappoint your child now, do you?

Enjoy yogurt every day, but remember to have at least half of your 3-4 servings of dairy in the form of milk, since most yogurts don’t provide vitamin D.
