As many of you know, this was not the spring break I had hoped for. I last talked about on the blog how sick my entire family has been. However, the good news is that we are all on the mend, feeling better, and spending today outside! I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful the sun feels to me right now as I sit writing this on my back terrace.
When the kids got sick I did my best to feed them foods that would help them get over this bug as quickly as possible. There is nothing worse than having sick kids. One food that I know of that is good for keeping our bodies healthy is yogurt. Yogurt is full of probiotics which help the good bacteria in our tummies thrive. My kids needed this, especially now that they are on antibiotics.
I decided to head to the store and pick up some kid yummy yogurt that also had good cultures in it. If you’ve ever shopped for kids yogurt you will find that many of them are just chalked full of sugar and are missing the point on the probiotics. That is why my go to brand has always been Stonyfield, they are always right on mark!

While I was browsing which flavors the kids might like, I noticed a new product: Stonyfield kids pouches! Not sure if you’ve seen them in your local stores yet, but they are amazing! They turned out to be perfect for the kids to eat while laying on the couch resting. There were no messy dropping of the spoons and flinging yogurt all over the place. (You smile because you know exactly what I am talking about don’t you?)
The kids (and mom) loved the taste of these new kid friendly flavors. My kids sucked them down. With their throats swollen it was hard for them to eat anything, so I was happy to have something that they would eat AND that was putting nutrition into their little bodies.
In an extra effort to make my kids comfortable I decided to make some frozen yogurt dots with the new Stonyfield pouches. It turned out to be a fun way for them to eat their yogurt and it also gave them the cooling effect that they wanted on their throats.
Making these frozen dots was super easy.
Line the bottom of a pan with parchment paper.
Open the Stonyfield yo-baby pouches and squeeze small dots of the yogurt onto the parchment paper.
Cover the pan with aluminum foil and place it in the freezer.
Freeze for about 1 hour, then pick the dots off the paper and eat.
