With Halloween right around the corner, I’m met with a certain ambivalence. My 20-month old, Nate, is so very aware of what everyone around him is eating. He’s also aware of when he can’t have the same thing as everyone else.
Over the weekend we went trick-or-treating at our local zoo. As I was picking through the candy, he wanted to try it all. Not because he knows what it tastes like as candy is something he’s not been exposed to aside from the occasional Dum-Dum sucker that he gets after a visit to the chiropractor’s office. But candy is colorful and fun. Of course he wants to check it out!

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.
