Everyday Mom's Meals: Even More Extra Calcium

Even More Extra Calcium

Back in January when I shared my Strawberry Yogurt Bites, they were a huge hit! One, because they are super simple. Two, because they taste insanely good and are highly addictive. And three, because so many moms out there discovered, like me, they were a fantastic way to get extra calcium into our kids!

And today I've got yet another way to sneak that calcium in and your kids will have absolutely no idea. Not to mention, if you thought the ones made with jello were easy...you "ain't" seen nothing yet!

The idea for these came to me via my Church Supper blog hop I host each weekend, where a couple weeks ago my great foodie friend Sheryl aka Lady Behind The Curtain shared her version and I instantly knew it was something Alex would love, and I would love to share with all of you. I know many of you never get the chance to drop by on Sundays, so these could be missed by many EMM fans, and it was too good of an idea not to make sure it reached as many people as possible.

A great after school snack, or simple dessert, these are fun to make and fun to eat. In fact, they are so simple, they are a great way to get the kids into the kitchen! With a little supervision, they could basically do the entire process themselves, which only leads to them wanting to eat them even more. Kids loving taste testing, but they love it more when they've gotten their hands dirty creating something. Plus, depending on the flavors you choose, the pretty pastel colors are perfect for Easter too.

I know many parents out there are struggling to get proper nutrients into their kids, and if you have resorted to covert operations, I say bravo! You gotta do what you gotta do. But with these, the guilt literally just melts away!

Place yogurts in 3 separate plastic bags. (I added a few drops of yellow food coloring to the lemon to get a richer yellow color.) Snip corner of each bag off. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Squeeze out small buttons of yogurt. Place in freezer until solid. Remove from parchment and keep in airtight container in freezer.
