I’ve realized as a mom my priorities for my little guy is to feed him healthy, nutrient packed foods. I grew up on canned vegetables, all the processed foods and junk I wanted and came out fine. Funny enough, I think because of that, i’ve become more health conscious. I know now I can control what my baby eats but when he’s older, I’ll have less and less say. With that being said, I’ve tried to make swaps from packaged products that are healthy but may have more sugar and preservatives than I would like to give. When I saw the store bought yogurt pouches at the grocery store, I thought to myself that I can make these myself in under 10 minutes. Not only do they have less sugar but are MUCH cheaper as I purchased reusable yogurt pouches and use whatever fruit and vegetables I have in my refrigerator. This easily can go from a kids treat to an adorable snack for us parents. It can be made into a FODMAP friendly snack by swapping out the whole dairy yogurt to a FODMAP friendly yogurt and adjustments to the fruit choices.
