I made these Kids Yogurt Cups because Ella is starting to learn her letters and loves saying what name corresponds with each letter. So, needless to say, Alpha-Bits is popular around here. This week Publix had them B1G1 along with the Yoplait Yo-plus yogurt. The Spice of Life columnist, Dawn Hoover, sent me this yogurt parfait recipe out of her Kermit the Frog Kids Cookbook. I thought it would be a great one to use for Ella's favorites. Yogurt and Alpha Bits! I made a similar Yogurt Parfait several months ago.
This recipe is really a method, and you can add whatever kind of yogurt, fruit, and cereal that your family enjoys. Let the kids jump in and make their own. They're more likely to eat it if they have a hand in the process! This morning we turned this into a Mommy-and-me breakfast and shared the cup with some fruit on the side.

How To Make Kids Yogurt Cups:
Put half the yogurt in the bottom of a cup. Layer in half of the cereal and berries. Repeat: yogurt, cereal, berries.

What fun ways do you like to help your children learn? We love to use all five senses when teaching our children and have found that by adding fun and easy snacks into the mix we can take care of two tasks at once. Snack time and learning! There are many ways to incorporate food into learning but always aim to make it as healthy as possible.
