Making the switch to greek yogurt
With of few of my Mommy friends asking me how I got my kids eat greek yogurt, I thought I’d share a few pro tips!
It doesn’t matter if your kids are eating sugary crap with candy on top (yuck – I long for the day when there will be fresh fruit to add in instead of M&Ms!) or plain and want to make the switch to greek. It just takes a few days to get your tastebuds adjusted and you can feel good about eating healthy. Just be sure to still read labels when it comes to sugar and fat content.
If you think it may take a few days, I would suggest buying vanilla greek yogurt first and adding in fresh fruit and granola. My kids tend to scarf down every bit if they are served like this:
After this, you can start using plain greek and adding in a small amount of honey or fruit if you’d like until tastes adjust.
It’s also great start using as you cook to make a thick and delicious ranch sauce for dipping fresh veggies or a healthy substitute for ice cream when making popsicles.
I hope these tips help your family make the switch!
