Yesterday we posted a few tips on how to encourage kids to eat a healthier diet and one of the tips was that getting them involved in the kitchen helps inspire them to eat what they cooked. This recipe for Frozen Greek Yogurt Pops with Fresh Fruit is a great example of an easy recipe they could easily help out with.
It’s also a great alternative for any of us ice cream lovers out there who can’t resist a creamy treat in the summertime!
We make our recipe with plain Greek yogurt but you can substitute in plain regular yogurt, as both are excellent healthy options, depending on your taste. Yogurt in general is a great way to add calcium to your diet which assists in keeping your bone mass dense and may help prevent osteoporosis. It also has been shown to aid digestive health. Our bodies need “good” bacteria to digest food properly and yogurts that include live active cultures and probiotics assist in the digestion process.
