It is my job as a mom to bring things into this house that are good for my kids. It is also my job to make sure that the kids actually eat things that are good for them. It seems like an easy task. I know. But the truth is, kids are picky, kids are particular, and kids are just plain hard to please sometimes! I have, many times, given in on the grocery store aisle because I was frustrated with my kids and their eating habits. Dinner time, I can kind of control. But snack time can be a bear. Since the girls were babies, however, there has been one brand of yogurt that I have liked for its more wholesome qualities. Now that the kids are older, I still turn to Stonyfield® Organic YoKids® yogurt. The kids love it. I love it and it is a great after school snack with less sugar!
My kids come home at different times every afternoon. Katie’s school gets out an hour earlier than Sarah and Megan’s. Add to that multiple clubs and afternoon activities and I am back and forth all afternoon long. But no matter what time they get home, they are hungry and want to unwind by playing. I have to fuel that playtime and satisfy their hunger at the same time. Stonyfield® Organic YoKids® yogurt tubes are a perfect snack. I freeze them and then hand them over as they head out the door. As an added bonus, Stonyfield recently announced a sugar reduction across its yogurt portfolio – and it started with YoKids®, featuring between 25% – 40% less sugar than the leading kids’ yogurt.
After school snacks with less sugar are a mom’s savior. Stonyfield® Organic YoKids® yogurts are certified organic and Non- GMO Project verified, which means that each cup is always made without the use of toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, antibiotics, and GMOs. Organic certification matters because just calling something natural isn’t a guarantee. You can be sure that when you see the USDA Organic label, the food it’s attached to was made by farmers who don’t plant GMO crops OR give their animals – like the dairy cows that make our milk – GMO feed.
As my girls run through the house, dropping their backpacks and grabbing their snacks, I hand over the Stonyfield® Organic YoKids® yogurt. They also have cups, pouches and smoothies too. I watch as they bound out the back door, stopping for just a moment to pet a dog or two and head to the swings and trampoline. Snack in hand, they can enjoy play time while I enjoy less sugar in their snack time.
Let me tell you, watching these kids play is so fun, too. I can sit back, listen to their chatter and laughter and enjoy that they are being kids.
As a mom it is hard to make all of my girls happy at the same time. But with Stonyfield® Organic YoKids® yogurt on my side, I can offer a creamy and delicious snack with less sugar. That makes me feel like I have it all under control.
