It’s Potty Time!

Okay, so the main reason that I haven’t posted much lately is because we went to Spain.   The other reason is because it’s potty training time!!!!  Can I just tell you that I thought giving birth was messy, then I thought changing a newborn’s diaper was messy but none of that comes close to potty training a toddler!  Thank you Bounty paper towels, sorry Planet Earth!  Alright, I’ll spare you the details, but I will tell you I did lots and lots and lots of research on the glorious, fantastic subject of potty training.  I thought for sure giving Ava a sticker every time she went potty would be so exciting.  Well, that lasted for about a day.  Then we turned to pink snacks….dum dum dum!

Pink snack is the name that Ava gave to Yogurt Melts.  There are several different brands of yogurt melts – Gerber, Happy Baby, Plum Organics, etc.  I usually only purchased these types of “food items” if we were going on an airplane, long car ride, long stroller ride, etc.  Ava loves these and I quickly decided that this would be the motivation she needs to do her business.  IT WORKS!!!  It actually worked so well that I don’t like how often and how many of these Pink Snacks she’s eating.  So, I made my own.  It’s so easy and I let Miss Ava help!

Strawberry Yogurt Bites

A.K.A. Pink Snack

  • 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 3 Large Strawberries, pureed

Simply stir together the yogurt and pureed strawberries until smooth.  Place inside a piping bag or a zip top bag with one corner cut open.  Pipe the yogurt mixture onto wax or parchment paper and freeze.  Once frozen transfer to a container and enjoy!

Greek Yogurt

Pureed Strawberries.  You can use any kind of berry you want.  Bananas would even be tasty.

Stir it together.

Fill a piping bag.

Squeeze out onto parchment paper.  I placed the parchment paper on a small rack that would fit inside my freezer so it would be easy to transfer.

Freeze.

Enjoy!  This is one of those treats that can satisfy all ages.  It’s a perfect little nummy num when you just need something.  You know what I mean!  Plus your pants will thank you for munching on this rather than potato chips!

    i think our daughters are about the same age, and we are also potty training. she is already going to the potty for #1, but still has a hard time going #2. she asks for a diaper. anyways, i’m going to make these and see if they work. thanks.

      Good luck! It’s such a huge project!! We had some setbacks while we were out of town but I’m really excited for the day when we have no more diapers in the house! :)

    Great idea! Once frozen, do this little tasties need to be kept in the freezer, fridge or in the cupboard in a ziploc? Just wondering if they are like the ‘freeze dried’ store bought ones…

      Yes, they need to stay in the freezer. They will start to “melt” at room temperature, still tasty but messy! :) I keep them in a freezer bag in the freezer.
