Confetti Fun Yogurt Fruit Dip

Confetti Yogurt Fruit Dip -

There are three things little kids can’t resist; dip, sprinkles, and doing things themselves. Here we combine them to make a fun healthy snack. I tried this experiment with my three-year-old son, CJ.

“CJ, do you want some fruit?”
“No tanks, Mommy.”
“Do you want yogurt?”
“No tanks.”
“How about we make some sprinkle fruit dip?”
“Yes!”

I rejoiced in the rare sound of a preschool voice forming the word “yes.” You parents know that’s rare; like seeing snow in August, or getting five minutes to yourself to shower.

A Child’s First Recipe

If your children are still learning the alphabet, they can follow along with the photos. If they are starting to read, this is a great way to show them how to follow a recipe. Help them learn to focus by reading through all the instructions first. The ingredients section is a fun way to talk about math and measurements.

By making their own snacks, your children learn important skills and get great confidence boosts. You will feel like Super Mom (or Dad) because you convinced them healthy food is fun! Three cheers for parental Jedi mind tricks! 

Fruit

To start, wash and cut any fruit you like. The little hands can help with the washing while you explain that knives are grown-up tools.

Adding Sprinkles to Greek Yogurt

For the dip, pour sprinkles into vanilla Greek yogurt.

Pour into a serving bowl. Top with more sprinkles. This photo is of a triple batch for sharing. If you can get preschoolers to make food, eat healthy, and share in the same day, you deserve an award. How about a trip to the tropics with all your best friends? Or maybe just a trip to the grocery store, alone. Which would you rather have?

Time to enjoy the fruits of our labor.

Even grown-ups like it. I admit, I’m just as much of a sucker for sprinkles as a three-year-old. From this photo it’s clear my husband is too!
