I used to spend a lot more time in the kitchen. I cooked nearly everything we ate from scratch and loved doing it. I made baby food for all of the kids, homemade snacks for their lunch boxes, a great breakfast every morning. Gradually, as I had more children, I spent less time in the kitchen and more time shuttling small people around town. Suddenly, grab and go foods became my friend. I always say that I have this internal struggle because I want to feed my kids the healthiest foods I can, but I also want options that are easy and affordable. It sounds impossible, but it’s not.
I shop at Sprouts often, because it’s right down the street from my house and they always have amazing sales. I stock up every Wednesday (double ads!) and I always check the Deals of the Month flyer for extra savings. On my last trip I was able to grab the ingredients for my Cinnamon Crunch Frozen Yogurt Breakfast Pops and some other pantry essentials for under $20.
The breakfast also make great after school snacks as well! My kids are always clamoring for a snack the second they get into the car at school pickup. Sometimes they can wait until we get home, especially if they know there are Annie’s Mini Pizza Bagels or Annie’s Mac and Cheese waiting for them, but just in case, I keep their favorite Larabar flavors in my purse too.
Easy after school snacks make my afternoons so much more peaceful, but where I really struggle is in the mornings. I’m not an early riser, though I do try, so we’re usually rushing to get out of the door on time. Having a simple, healthy breakfast that is ready to eat makes everything go so much smoother. Even better if the kids can eat it in the car, because usually that’s the only way we’ll make it on time to school. These breakfast pops are the perfect solution, and they are so quick to throw together the night before.
Just mix together yogurt and cereal, throw into mini cups or popsicle molds, garnish with a little more cereal and freeze! I used plain yogurt and added my own flavor and sweetener because I like to control the amount of sugar in our food as much as I can, but you could use already sweetened vanilla yogurt as well, and omit the stevia and vanilla in the recipe.
