During the school year, my family eats breakfast in two shifts. The early birds take shift one, and they are out the door for work and middle school before it’s even time to wake up the younger kids.
Weekday breakfasts are usually simple, and even better if they can be “grab-and-go” for the mornings we are running late. I’m talking about my teenager when I say “we” are running late. He sleeps in til the very last possible minute, so he almost always needs to take his breakfast to go.
My family loves to start the day with Yoplait yogurt. As the person in charge of making breakfast, I am totally happy about this for a couple reasons. First, breakfast prep doesn’t get much simpler than taking the lid off a yogurt cup!
Second (and actually the best reason!) is that Yoplait yogurt is an easy way for all of us, especially the kids, to get 20% of daily calcium before we leave the house for the day. On the days my teen is running late, I can send him out the door with a Yoplait yogurt and spoon. He’s gotten good at eating on the run.
Kids need plenty of calcium in their diet during childhood and teen years to support growing bones and teeth. Dairy foods like Yoplait yogurt help make it happen in a most delicious way.
It’s always yogurt o’clock at my house.
To me, one of the best things about yogurt is it is a food we feel like eating just about any time of day. Yoplait yogurt is light, tasty and a better for you option at breakfast, lunch, dinner and all the snack times in between.
I don’t know how it is at your house, but over here, it seems like my kids are always asking me for snacks. One of my first suggestions is to grab a Yoplait yogurt out of the fridge.
Yoplait Fridge Packs are perfect for families.
When you have four yogurt-loving kids (plus 2 yogurt-loving adults) living in the same household, yogurts can disappear fast. I like to stock up with Yoplait Fridge Packs at Walmart. Each Fridge Pack contains 8 Yoplait yogurts. I usually buy at least two at at time. (I told you we eat a lot of yogurt at my house!)
The variety packs let us pick from delicious flavor options. We especially love the Original Strawberry/Mixed Berry and Original Vanilla/Orange Cream. The Fridge Packs are conveniently stackable to save space. I have a small refrigerator, so I notice stuff like that.
The Orange Cream yogurts are my 7-year-old son’s favorite Yoplait flavor. I like to freeze this kind for the kids to have frozen Orange Cream yogurt pops. It’s a yummy cool treat, you should definitely give it a try.
Yoplait Fridge Packs are available in: Original Strawberry, Original Strawberry/Mixed Berry, Original Strawberry/Peach, Original Strawberry Banana, and Original Vanilla/Orange Cream. What are your family’s favorite Yoplait Yogurt flavors?
