Yogurt 2 for 1Pin

For some parents making breakfast for you and your toddler can be challenging. You don’t want to feel like a short order cook in the kitchen preparing two totally separate meals, but the fact is, sometimes you want something a bit different, but without having to pull out a ton of other ingredients.

On weekday mornings, especially when Kenya and Chloe were really little I wasn’t always able to sit and have breakfast with the kids. I was there, but trying to get them fed, finish up lunches and start thinking about dinner left little time for actually gluing myself to the chair, leaving me with breakfast on the run. Seriously, a mom’s job in the kitchen should be some sort of Olympic sport!

The kids still love layering fruit and yogurt while they enjoy their breakfast and then I’ll toss all the leftovers with a bit of milk in the blender for my on-the-go smoothie. It’s not always the ideal situation in the morning, but a mom’s work is never done and staying energized is a necessity! When Parents magazine asked me to come up with a few easy Mommy and Me breakfast ideas, I knew this family staple would be perfect. You can now read my monthly column in every issue of the magazine!

  1. This is such a good idea. Love this, I might even just combine them all and make yogurt smoothies for two…my toddler has recently learned the fun of drinking smoothies out of a straw (with a cup and lid).

  2. If I was just going to make smoothies, could I use frozen fruit? Would I need to change the quantities?

  3. You can use frozen fruit and leave the measurements the same! Add more milk as needed to reach desired consistency!
