Greek Yogurt "Parfait"

When I take my kids grocery shopping, they always ask me to buy Trix yogurt, Crush Cups or some other type of junky yogurt that's full of sugar and food coloring. I don't like buying that stuff, but every once in a while, I give in because they like it so much. It's a treat for them, they really enjoy it and I enjoy watching them eat it up. Their lil' faces glow and they're all smiles as they savor every bite. They're so easy to please sometimes. :)

Costco was sampling Greek Nonfat Yogurt topped with a little honey. The boys really loved it so I bought a container knowing it was a better choice compared to the junky yogurt they ask for. We also picked up blueberries and the boys ate greek yogurt topped with blueberries and honey after school for a couple of days. When the blueberries ran out, I made the boys "fruit parfaits" and poured a little cereal in a bowl and topped it with yogurt and homemade plum preserves. It was delicious! What a healthy little snack considering all the junky alternatives they could've picked. This is packed with protein and perfect for holding you over till dinner time. Great stuff!

Son #2 likes to eat the yogurt without mixing it.

Son #1 likes to stir it all together.
