On the Go Snack Idea: Yogurt Parfait Cups

I am so glad that we took this summer easy and decided ahead of time to not schedule too many summer camps and summer classes. Now of course we scheduled some…I’m not crazy for crying out loud! And since we don’t have a strict schedule most days we can wake up and, if it is nice out, we have the whole (or most!) of the day to go get out there and do this thang called life. We might plan a trip with friends to the park, head to the zoo, or splash at the pool. And as we tend to be out and about roaming the land, I always need to think ahead about snacks and meals for my ruffians. Rule #1 of mom club, as you know, is never be caught without a food source! One of my kids favorite on the go snacks are these super easy to make Yogurt Parfait Cups so we typically make sure we have all ingredients on hand to make them.
Yogurt Parfait Cups are such a fun idea for on the go snacking // SmashedPeasandCarrots.com
