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!
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!
