Do you have a picky toddler at home?
Sometimes that transition to solids and new foods can be tough. I find it’s easiest for us, with Juliana to introduce her to new flavors and foods early on so she doesn’t get too picky down the road.
One of Juliana’s favorite foods is yogurt. We eat yogurt all the time and she even has a special hand signal/toddler mumble she gives me whenever she wants some yogurt.
She has been gaining her independence and loves doing everything herself, including holding her own spoon. No more help from mom thank you very much.
I’m happy she is learning, but I’ll never understand why our sweet babies have to grow up and get all independent.
Eating with a spoon at her high chair helps her learn and grow her motor skills. One of the best foods to practice with a spoon is yogurt because it’s easy to make and put in a bowl. So, I thought I would show you how to make your own toddler yogurt bowls.
5-Minute Apple Blueberry Toddler Yogurt Bowls
These yogurt bowls take 5 minutes and only 2 ingredients. Easy and fast for busy toddler moms!
Here’s What You Need:
2-3 Tbs. Plain whole milk or greek yogurt
1/2 container of different flavors of Gerber Lil’ Bits
(That’s all you need, easy right!?)
Here’s What You Do:
Step 1: Put 2-3 tablespoons of your whole milk or greek yogurt and place in a toddler friendly bowl. We use 3 tablespoons of plain greek yogurt and I love using a melon baller to scoop out the yogurt!
Step 2: Mix 1/2 container of Gerber Lil’ Bits Apple Blueberry in the bowl with your yogurt until well mixed.
Tips and Tricks: You can add more/less yogurt/Lil’ Bits to suit your baby’s taste. This can also be done with different flavors of Gerber Lil’ Bits to mix it up for your toddler.
Gerber Lil’ Bits are perfect for these yogurt bowls because they contain real little bits of fruits and vegetables that your toddler can easily chew.
This is so great for practicing to use a spoon. Just be sure to feed in a high chair and get those wipes ready because it can get messy!
Gerber has tons of tips for the transition to solids and for feeding your toddler!
Juliana really enjoys these toddler bowls and usually wants more when she is finished!
