A Healthy Snack for Picky Kids (and Adults!)

Kids are sometimes finicky eaters but here is a snack (it could certainly be a lunch or breakfast)  that is packed with protein and fiber that your you and your kids will like, because you can customize it how your family eats.  This is so easy it’s not even a recipe but the combo is amazing and can be altered depending on your family’s taste.

It’s up to you, but I like to add a sprinkling of brown sugar.  You could add a few chocolate chips.  Whatever will entice your child/grandchild eat it.  No one knows better than you what they like but don’t forget to encourage them to try something new – just a bite.  Then if they don’t like it, ask them what would make it better?  And go from there!  You may just have a little chef with some great ideas.

And now you have a snack that pleases everyone, including you, without making separate snacks for each person.  The yogurt provides probiotic and keeps everyone’s metabolism running!  The pomegranate seeds, which can we just give a hallelujah that they sell them already seeded now in the produce department of most grocery stores!  I remember seeding many pomegranates and its messy work!  The seeds add about 5 grams of fiber.  The strawberries will keep everyone feeling full!  You can’t go wrong with any fruit, so use whatever you have in the fridge.
