Toddler Tip: Cereal with Yogurt
My son loves to eat cereal, especially his current favorite, Cocoa Krispies. (Nope, I'm not particularly proud of that, but it makes him happy.) But he makes a horrible mess eating it since his spoon skills are still more enthusiastic than accurate.
One morning, I thought, hey I wonder if he'll eat the cereal with yogurt instead of milk? So I popped in 3 toddler spoonfuls of plain yogurt and mixed them in with the cereal.
The result? He loves it! The cereal sticks together because of the yogurt, and sticks to the spoon better. (It also sticks to his face better, as you can see!) More cereal ends up in his mouth instead of on the floor. That's a win-win.
