Freezing Yogurt

Being that her appetite has waned, and she's eating less now than she did eighteen months ago, I'm happy for any food that I can convince Grace to put in her belly.

I've even resorted to silly noises and saying things like, “Feed your belly!” and “Grace! Your belly is hungry!” Use your imagine to hear the goofy voices that might go with those. I'm not making a video of that.

There are a scant few foods that Grace will willingly eat almost every time. One of these foods is the incredible, edible olive and the other is yogurt.

The third is chocolate, but let's pretend she has never tasted chocolate, okay?

I have come up with a trick for convince Grace to eat the yogurt. I freeze it.

Grace thinks she's getting ice cream, and I'm totally okay with that for now. The “ice cream” is sweet and creamy and full of fruit and the calcium that she needs.

They contain a lot of added sugar, but I have been freezing Gogurt yogurt pops often. They're easy, and Grace can feed them to herself. We have been doing frozen Gogurts for an after school snack. I usually cut them in half so that she has two smaller servings, and she gobbles the half down in no time.

What are your kids snacking on these days?

  1. Hey, I’m glad to hear you mention that Grace’s appetite is waning. For the past two weeks, Noah’s eating practically nothing, and we’ve been wondering what’s wrong. He had such a huge appetite before. You’ve reminded me that this is probably totally normal and maybe we don’t need to always find a REASON!

  3. TJ loves yogurt, thankfully. The list of foods he’ll willingly eat seems to shrink constantly. This week, it’s yogurt, Chicken McNuggets, pizza, jelly sandwiches, corn, and mashed potatoes.

  5. We went to a pizza/salad buffet place for dinner tonight… and some people were looking at me strange when I was piling food on my plate – black olives, mushrooms, garbanzo beans, green beans, kidney beans, tunafish, and shredded mozzarella cheese. I can imagine they were probably thinking, “What weird diet is she ON?!” Actually it was all for my toddler. And she devoured every last bit!
