Ahhhhh yes, "yogurt" in a tube. We have that here too but I don't know what they're called as I've never bought them. Your description makes them sound extra appealing...lol

Re: What do your kids get for an after school snack?

DD1 eats lunch at 12:15-12:45
DD2 eats lunch at 11:15-11:45
DD3 eats lunch at 1:00pm
DS eats lunch at 12:30pm

I wake ds up at 3:30 to go pick up dd3 from preK and we are all home around 4:05. We usualy eat dinner around 7pm....schedules vary depending on time of year. Right now here is when dinner happens:
Monday - 7pm
Tuesday - 6:15pm (In the car between dd3 ballet and dd1 and dd2 swim team practice) Dh and I eat after we get them home and in bed around 9:15
Wednesday - DD1 and DD2 eat at 6pm, DD3 and DS eat at 7:10, dh and I eat after we get everyone home from their activities and them in bed around 9pm
Thursday 7:30pm
Friday 7pm

On Tues and Wed they get a quick smaller snack b/c they mostly eat early. The other days when they don't eat until 7pm or 7:30 they get a bigger snack or more of a snack.

Snack options:
celery and ranch
apples and peanut butter
nuts
yogurt
string cheese and triscuits
goldfish
graham crackers and applesauce

Not all "gogurt" is created equal. THIS is what we have. Easy for the kids for a quick on the go snack.

My kids get a snack at their after school program. They serve either fruit or veggies with a grain or dairy product.
Today they had apple slices with yogurt, tomorrow is carrots with hummus and pita. They also have apple sauce and pretzels, cheese and crackers, Cesar salad with croutons etc. They are required to serve 2 food groups with a snack and I love that they chose fruit/veggies most often :-)

When the kids are at home they eat similar snacks when they aren't eating ochazuke (rice with green tea)

9g of sugar per tube is more than a Quaker chocolate chip granola bar

That's because it isn't "gogurt". Its the same yogurt replacement option for gogurt in the link I posted earlier called "YoKids" by a completely different manufacturer. She asked what "gogurt" was, and I answered with the truth. If she had asked what "YoKids" was I would have answered differently

I keep our diets simple, veggies, lean meats, whole wheat, limit fruits, drink mainly water, limit dairy. They can have as much as they want, as long as its healthy.

It doesn't. A gogurt has 10g of sugar per serving. A coke has 65g of sugar per serving.

It seems that around here, people refer to any portable yogurt as gogurt. Same thing as someone calling a facial tissue a kleenex.

I use these and just fill it with real yogurt:

Pirate booty is a puffed corn snack toted more in the natural sections of stores and in trader joe. Kids love it. I give my kids these and also pack a small baggie for the school going kids. Melt easily enough in mouth for younger kids too who you are nervous to give popcorn too.


If you would like to know the sodium/calorie count let me know as I have 1/10 of a bag left

I'm sure pirate booty will get bashed too.......


We do those chobani tubes of yogurt too, more greek yogurt taste, a good intro for kids.

Can you freeze those reusable yogurt containers? Or do they stay cold for school/outing.
