As parents, one of our top concerns are making sure our children get the right foods so that they can eat balanced meals. As a mom of two picky eaters, I have to pay close attention to the choices I make when I grocery shop with the objective in mind of avoiding food arguments over dinner time. With picky eaters it is always a challenge to find foods they really like and will eat with enjoyment. One of those foods that scored high at home has been by far Yoplait Trix Yogurt. We are big on yogurt at home, and my three children love them in all forms, colors and flavors. But, every time I bring home Yoplait Trix yogurt, they jump up and down with excitement.
Being so colorful and with a silly bunny on the packaging, it never ocurred to me to try it, you know, I am the adult after all and we eat serious foods, right? Well, wrong… because I was really intrigued why they would get so excited about Yoplait Trix yogurt. So, the other day that I went to replenish our yogurt stock, and decided to get some for myself and find out what the big deal about this yogurt is. To my surprise, I really really liked it. For starters, it is not overly sweet – I loved that since I am not a sweets person. Second, it is healthy as it can be, but in a fun way for children. It has no sweeteners or artificial flavors, in fact, it is fortified with vitamin-D and calcium.
One of my picky eaters will not drink milk so I heavily on yogurt as my children's source of calcium and vitamin-D. Yogurt is part of our breakfast, lunch and dinner meals, and believe or not, sounds like a lot but, it is also my children's preferred snack meal. And, of course, Yoplait Trix Yogurt is their preferred snack when to comes to healthy foods and a perfect companiment for their fruit choice. Yogurt is a healthy snack for children as simple as that.
I have reached the conclusion that fun foods are not necessarily synonyms for unheathly foods. You just need to read labels, visit websites and educate yourselves about the product you want your children to snack on. Like I said, yogurt is always part of our meals, especially because one of my 3 children won't drink milk.
Trix are for kids" but unwanted additives definitely are not. That's why Yoplait® Trix® Yogurt comes in silly, swirly flavors kids love, without high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, or sweeteners. It's still the same bright, fun, colorful snack, only better. You'll love that they love it!
