Fresh Mango-Berry-Yogurt Popsicles!

Fresh mango-berry-yogurt popsicles

Summer vacation for kids means you have to gear up with quite a lot of extra energy to keep yourself as active as they are, isn’t it?! My kids want to play the whole day…sometimes they are so excited about playing that they would not simply spend some of their “precious” time in “useless projects” like eating! But then, we are moms. We know how to make our kids eat!

My sweet and naughty kids…the older one is going to be four years old very soon!

So when my kids refuse to have the usual “healthy” food comprising milk, fruits, eggs, bread, yogurt, etc., sometimes I make something fancy out of these. Why not make some super-easy, healthy and colourful popsicles with lots of fruits and yogurt for your kids! I add some honey along with a little sugar, which makes this even more healthier. I am sure they are going to enjoy this and ask you for more!

    What a brilliant idea. Sometimes you have to do whatever it takes to get creative so your kids will eat nourishing food. I use to purée veggies to put in my pasta sauce. What they don’t know won’t hurt them.

    I have to say though what child or adult wouldn’t love these. They’re beautiful to begin with and you know what they say, we eat with our eyes first. I think I will have to make these.

    Seriously I’m in love with these. Your story about kids totally remind me of mine – the age is similar and mine is active like yours. :-) These popsicles look super yummy!! You are right – they get bored with healthy stuff but when you make THIS (pretty much similar) they go crazy. Moms need to work extra hard to entertain kids. LOL! ;-)
