Frozen Yogurt Drops

Your littles will think it’s candy, but it’s actually a healthy snack!

Using Greek yogurt, applesauce, or your favorite pureed baby food, make these sweet treats the whole family can enjoy! You just need a pan, a plastic baggie, and your treat of choice to freeze. Best of all, school-aged kids can help make these fun snacks for themselves AND their younger siblings. 🙂

You can also put the yogurt or other pureed food into little paper cups and freeze them with a little popsicle stick inside (or a plastic spoon). When frozen, add a little piece of fresh fruit or little sprinkles on top and serve to your older kids like a little popsicle. Click below to read more from the source!
