My daughters always come home from school STARVING! (They almost never eat breakfast and school lunch is “gross”!) The first thing they do when they get home is grab a snack. They are like locusts, devouring everything in their sights. I used to keep fruit snacks, granola and cereal bars in the house for them to snack on but when I actually read the labels I saw that they are filled with sugar, preservatives, and other additives my girls definitely do not need.
So now am I extra careful about the snacks I keep on hand. I don't want the girls eating junk food, especially a couple of hours before dinner. While we are always stocked up on apples, bananas, and other fruit, their go-to snack is usually yogurt. It is a staple in our house. Open our fridge on any given day and you will find three things: milk (because my husband and I can't start our day without milk in our tea), at least one kind of goat cheese (because goat cheese!), and Yoplait yogurt.
I stock up on the convenient 8 packs at Walmart because they always have the best price (You wouldn't believe how expensive it is to feed five hungry girls!) and well, I need to buy A LOT of yogurt (5 girls X 5 school days = 25 cups of yogurt a week, and that doesn't count when they take it to school for lunch). The strawberry/mixed berry 8 pack is our house favorite, but the original vanilla/orange cream 8 pack is a close second.
I am happy the girls like yogurt so much. Yoplait yogurt is a better for you snack that is low in sugar, cholesterol, and saturated fat. It contains 6 grams of protein, plus 20% of the recommended daily allowance of calcium and vitamin D. Yoplait yogurt also contains vitamin A, magnesium, and potassium, among other vitamins and minerals.
