Among the many, many things that I love about Big Sister E's preschool, one is all of the great things that she is continually learning. And not just traditional concepts like mastering the ABCs, how to raise your hand and wait to be called on, or why to not wave scissors around while sitting at the art table (although they are learning those, too).
Instead, for a while now I've been hearing about eating healthy and the importance of taking care of your body.
"Milk is healthy for you, Mama. I'm gonna drink milk!"
"Are carrots healthy for you, Mama?" Yes, carrots are very healthy for you. "Oh. I'd like some carrots, please!"
"Broccoli is good for you, it helps you get big and strong!"
Who knew that my 4-year-old was such an expert on nutrition? However, that just meant when I told her that she was going to get to enjoy yogurt, which was already a major favorite of hers, and that it was going to be good for you because it was Yoplait Kids, she nearly bolted out of her seat to go get a spoon!
When it comes to yogurt, Yoplait Kids is an excellent source of both calcium and vitamin D, a good source of protein... and of course it has the delicious taste that kids demand. It also contains 25% less sugar than the leading kids' yogurt, and has no high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. This is one snack that parents and kids can both agree on!
With tasty flavor options, as well as calcium, vitamin D and protein to help build strong bones, Yoplait Kids yogurt is sure to be a popular choice around many households. A great value at just $2.00 for a pack of four, this yogurt comes in three delicious flavors, including Strawberry, Strawberry Banana and Vanilla... and we're big fans of all three.
As an added bit of fun to this tasty snack, kids love finding their favorite friends, like Dora the Explorer, Lightning McQueen and the Disney Princesses, on every cup. Granted, my kids would both eat yogurt at every meal no matter who was shown on it, but it does add a little extra touch of excitement for them when these yogurts are pulled out of the refrigerator.
Overall, there is just something so versatile and convenient about feeding my kids yogurt, that it could end up appearing at just about any meal of the day. Depending on what we're doing, yogurt packs up easily in a cooler or lunchbag and comes along to playdates, picnics, day trips, and more and is always a favorite.
Yoplait Kids just makes it easy to make snack time or mealtime fun with a healthy, portable food that the whole family can enjoy.
