Make Your Own Gogurt For A Healthy (and Green) Snack
November 4, 2011 15 Comments
Gogurts, in case you didn't know, are tubes of yogurt made by Yoplait. Every time, I pass the yogurt section with my children they demand them.
My son has started kindergarten and he has noticed that other children in his class bring Gogurts for lunch.
The whining, crying, and general carrying on about Gogurts has been annoying. (I wrote about Gogurts back in June 2010: Is a GoGurt a Healthy Go or a Junk Food No?.)
Some of you out there are probably wondering why I pay any attention to this childish RANT over a treat. Well, I think I can learn something from Yoplait here and get my kid to eat a healthy version if I am creative.
If we can harness the power of food marketing to get our kids to eat healthy food - then aren't we smart?
What if there was a product out there that was the shape of a Gogurt, BPA free, dishwasher safe, and had lids? All you have to do is fill it with some plain yogurt and your favorite jam and your kid stops whining! (see Save Money, Calories, and the Environment with this Yogurt )
Here is the photo of my happy child with his new homemade gogurt containers (AKA Kinderville Little Bites Ice Pop Molds).
Kinderville sent me a package of these to review for Snack Girl. And, as you can see, we have one happy customer.
He has made his own yogurt pop a couple of times now and he is having trouble sharing them with his sister :)
They are super easy to use and REUSABLE which you can't say about a Gogurt. Also, if your child only eats a portion of his snack then you can save it for later. Less food waste - hurray!
We put them in the freezer and they made a great yogurt popsicle. This is also a good way to keep them cold for lunch when you pack them in a lunch box.
The price on these is a little steep (there was a lower price on a different brand) but these are very high quality and I think we will get a lot of use out of them.
They should pay for themselves pretty quickly if you buy Gogurts on a regular basis.
You can buy them on Kinderville's online store here: Kinderville Ice Pop Molds or Amazon.com below.
