After School Snacks: Berry Parfait


The waiting period between after school and dinner can sometimes seem endless. A little one can get very hungry and quite quickly grumpy if left unfed. I know I do! While you don't want them to eat too much and get full before dinner, snacking lightly and nutritiously has been proven to work wonders for the body. With this series, I hope to bring you some quick and easy after school snacks that your little one can enjoy... and look forward to! Feel free to adapt the portions to your child's size and appetite as well as using substitutes depending on food allergies and individual tastes.

  • 1/2 cup coconut greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tsp. of honey (I used a lavender one for extra flavor)
  • an assortment of berries (as needed)
  • Pour one of the yogurt's into your little one's favorite cup. I stared with the greek yogurt first!
  • Arrange half of your berries on top of the yogurt. I chose strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries but you can get creative with other fruits, nuts, and granola even.
  • Drizzle half of the honey (1/2 tsp.) over the fruit and yogurt. You can add more or less depending on your little one's taste buds. You can also substitute with anything that drips really.
  • Repeat steps 1-3 with your second yogurt of choice, mine was vanilla... Enjoy!
