When it comes to preparing fast, healthy, and delicious meals for my family, I know I’m not the only parent looking for recipes. That said, today I’m sharing just how I make sure my little ones are getting enough high-quality protein in their meals. Need a hint? I start with with dairy!
Many kids eat their largest meal at breakfast. I like to take full advantage of their large appetite in the morning by offering at least two servings of dairy. This ensures they get vitamins, nutrients and protein to fuel their day.
Healthy Snacking Tips
If, like me, you like to keep after-school snacks on hand, you likely find that tasty doesn’t always mean healthy or nutritious. Therefore, I look for snacks that are:
- Made with milk
- Include whole grains
- High in protein
- Made with real-food ingredients

Frequently asked questions:
Is Greek yogurt better than regular yogurt?
While all yogurt is a great source of dairy, I love Greek yogurt for the added protein. For example, on average one serving of Greek yogurt has 17 grams of protein!
How do you reduce the amount of carbs?
Bananas can easily be swapped out for other lower sugar, lower carbohydrate fruits such as berries.
Can this be made lactose free?
Non-lactose containing yogurt brands such as coconut yogurt or almond milk alternative can be used as a replacement for traditional Greek yogurt.
Is this meal prep friendly?
I would recommend assembling the bowls right before serving in order to prevent bananas from browning. However, feel free to individually portion out serving sizes of yogurt for quick assembly.
Your spoon is waiting.
