It’s a scenario that occurs in most homes at least once a day. Your kids have just come barreling through the door after school or after an activity absolutely STARVING. What can you give them that is satisfying, nutritious and doesn’t involve whipping up a whole meal? We’ve got a quick and easy suggestion. Do NOT underestimate the power of yogurt! It’s filling, flavorful, versatile and comes in all kinds of varieties. In fact, I’m convinced that the yogurt section of the grocery store expands each week — occupying more real estate to showcase what is becoming quite an adventure in food!

Heck you don’t even need teeth to enjoy it!
