Afterschool Snacks: Cranberry Cutie Parfait

This post is part of our Afterschool Snacks series, featuring easy, kid-chef friendly recipes that can be made at home or at school.

Parfait

After a busy and exciting day at school, the kids are home and bellies are grumbling. Have no fear, Healthier Generation is here, serving up inspiration for quick, easy, and healthy afterschool snacks.

Yogurt, a classic snack, is truly delicious and nutritious. Turn up the dial by creating a taste bud delighting and eye-catching yogurt parfait. Our Cranberry Cutie Yogurt Parfait recipe is a fun twist on a classic parfait and a great way to utilize all the cutie-grams received for Valentine’s Day. 

Yogurt is deliciously creamy and tangy, but is also packed nutrients – calcium, Vitamin D and protein for strong bones and muscles – a true superfood. Cranberries are antioxidant-rich and packed with essential nutrients for good heart health. The juicy clementine pieces are bursting with nutrients such as B Vitamins, Vitamin C, and potassium. Each element is delightful on their own, but when combined they create a symphony of flavor, texture, and an ultimate heart-healthy concoction.
