Naturally Healthy Toddler-Pleasing Snack

img_4705My son loves fresh fruit.  We decided to add a new twist to an old favorite.  We stirred in some honey into plain, whole milk yogurt as a dip for apple wedges.  Not only is it a healthy, vitamin-rich snack, but it’s something that I can enjoy with my son, too.

*MAKE IT*

1-2 apples sliced and cored

(gala, fuji, pink lady, roma, or braeburns are my favorites)

2 Tablespoons of plain, whole-milk yogurt

1-1.5 teaspoons of honey (pick your fave)

Stir honey into yogurt

Serve and enjoy

My son usually eats apple wedges similar to how I’d eat a quarter of a watermelon…leaving the apple skin like I’d eat down to the rind.  However, when i introduced the yogurt dip, I showed him how to dip it and then bite off an end of the apple.  He quickly followed suit and enjoyed his snack fully.

  1. First, the picture is adorable.

    Second, I enjoyed the tip. I have used a similar yogurt dressing for fruit when entertaining adults, but never thought about using it for the littlest ones. Thanks for the idea!

  2. That is a good idea! My daughter just discovered dipping, so I am sure she will love this. Great photo!
