Summer Snack

One of our favorite snacks right now is a small bowlful of plain yogurt with blueberries, sliced strawberries and raspberries. I love when berries are in season.

Actually, it's not my 3 1/2 year old's favorite. I haven't convinced him about plain yogurt yet (even with all the fruit). He'll do the flavored yogurts (which often contain corn syrup). Or just the berries. But berries and yogurt together is going to take a little convincing. At least he's eating the berries.


  1. Anna is a dairy nut across the board, and she devours plain yougurt alongside cottage cheese, sour cream, and milk. That's been her staple the past year. Thankfully, she's starting to revive an interest in vegetables.

    How about adding a bit of honey or blue agave sweetner to the yougurt as well? A few drops of vanilla could hel as well.

  2. Yeah, Nils might just eat it if I blend the fruit together with the yogurt in a blender. And add plenty of sweetener.
