For Parents

Yogurt sundaes can be served as a snack or for breakfast. Yogurt sundaes contain dairy products and fruits, which provide nutrition for kids to grow strong and healthy.

When choosing a cereal for your child, choose a low-sugar cereal. This means that the cereal should have 8 grams of sugar or less per serving.

Kids are more likely to eat something that they have helped make. This yogurt sundae is a great way to let kids help in the kitchen. It also exposes them to different types of food. Kids will enjoy measuring the yogurt and spooning it into the dish. Allow kids to choose different fruits to top their yogurt sundaes such as raisins, peaches, or bananas.
