D is our three year old and he has always loved to eat. He is our child who loves peas, carrots, and broccoli, but turns his nose up at meat and beans. He usually likes chicken, but other than that, it is hard to get him to eat protein. He will eat fruit and vegetables all day, but I know he needs whole protein foods, too, so I’m always searching for ways to add protein to his diet.
The Captain, on the other hand, is a meat eater, through and through. He struggles with getting enough calcium because he does not like milk or cheese. I worry about him getting enough calcium just like I worry about D getting enough protein. They both need calcium for strong bones and protein for energy to go, go, go! Luckily, they both love yogurt so I was thrilled to find the Stonyfield Organic refrigerated yogurt pouches.
I love the convenience of the YoKids pouches. You don’t know how many times we are out the door and I realize the boys need a snack (or breakfast sometimes…oops!) and these pouches rescue me….just grab and go! The boys love the strawberry flavor. I love that the ingredients are always organic and never contain high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors.
So whether we are going to school, a soccer game, shopping, or something as simple as talking a “drive” to the local recycling bin, the boys can have a quick snack that provides them with calcium and protein! Plus, Stonyfield Organic yogurt has live and active cultures to keep the boys’ tummies and immune systems in tip top shape.
