Making your own yogurt and fruit bar with a simple yogurt bars recipe is a great way to ensure your child isn’t getting a ton of extra sugar and harmful chemicals in their diet. You know exactly what is going into it and can tailor it to suit your family.

  • Even if your child has a sensitivity to cow’s milk, you could easily use coconut or almond yogurt!

  1. This is such kind of breakfast that kids can never deny this. it’s looking so yummy thanks for sharing the tips. this weekend i will definitely try this one for sure as my children always leave the breakfast saying they are not hungry.

  2. I’m always looking for low cal but fun snacks . This is such a fun idea and I love how quick and customizable it is . Threw a couple Oreo wafers on top for some “cookies and cream bars”. Perfect! I’ll be using this recipe a bunch.

  3. I love that idea! THANKS so much!

  4. Hi! Can I ask if you store this in the freezer or the fridge when it’s been broken into pieces?
