The ultimate easy snack and packable treat has become tubes of yogurt, stuck in the freezer until hard, and then eaten like a popsicle or packed to-go style and used as an extra edible ice pack. My kids love them, and I love the convenience of them, but with four kids, they can become a bit expensive if we’re eating them all the time.
Making my own also has the added benefit of me controlling the ingredients that are going in, and so I can end up with a snack that leaves processed sugars out, instead looking to seasonal produce and honey for a bit of added sweetness.

This month’s Eat Well, Spend Less theme entertaining on a budget, and we’re talking about parties, barbecues, picnics and more, and I’m chiming in with healthy potluck recipes you can take to your next potluck:
In all honesty, my favorite potluck dish growing up was watergate salad, full of marshmallows, pineapple and nuts, but I’m not sure how well it qualifies for the “eat well” part of our series with its processed frozen whipped topping and instant pudding mix. That said, I think I’ll be adding this to our meal plan for Memorial Day because surely every kid needs to have it at least once it their life, right?
Head here to see which recipes made my list.
