I’m always on the lookout for an easy, healthy and quick summer snack that we can take when we’re on the go. We just got back from a trip to the Outer Banks, and a week on the beach. One of the snacks we grabbed to take along was Trix Yogurt. It made a great beach snack. We just stored it in the fridge, and threw it in the iced down cooler with our drinks when we were heading out to the beach for the day.
Every kids loves the Trix rabbit, at least I did when I was growing up! Hes still a favorite today! Kids will be happy to see his familiar face on their yogurt.
Trix Yogurt is cool and refreshing on a warm summer day at the beach. It’s also a great healthy snacking option any time, even on the go. I love that the new improved Trix Yogurt doesn’t contain any high fructose corn sugar, or artificial flavors. Yogurt is packed with nutrients, and it helps meet the kid’s daily requirement for calcium and other important vitamins. Sometimes it’s hard to get anything nutritious in their bodies when we’re going from one activity to the next.
I was also excited to find out Yoplait doesn’t use artificial colors to get those bright fun colors in Trix, they use vegetable juice and other natural coloring. Yogurt is also great for your digestive health. Since it’s a fermented food, it contains good bacteria your gut needs to help with digestion.
Trix Yogurt also comes in several fun flavor combinations, all of them made with natural fruit flavors. One of the most popular with the kids in our group was Cotton Candy (pictured below). Some of the other Yoplait Trix Yogurt flavors include:
- Raspberry Rainbow
- Triple Cherry
- Raspberry Rainbow
- Strawberry Banana Bash
- Strawberry Punch
Yum! We also enjoyed Strawberry Banana Bash and Strawberry Punch for our beach snacking.
All the flavors were a big hit, and the 4 ounce yogurt cups were the perfect size for an afternoon snack. Sometimes the larger size yogurts are a little too much for kids. Trix Yogurt is definitely a summer snacking favorite in our house (and our beach house last week). You can see the kids had no problem gobbling it down! It was easy to keep stocked in the fridge for them to grab when they were hungry, and to take along for a day on the beach. It got two thumbs up with all the kids, and with the parents for a healthy, easy snacking idea.
What are you snacking on this summer? Do your summer snack options include yogurt? Do your kids have a favorite Trix Yogurt flavor? We’d love to hear about it!
“Trix are for kids” but unwanted additives definitely are not. That’s why Yoplait® Trix® Yogurt comes in silly, swirly flavors kids love, without high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, or sweeteners. It’s still the same bright, fun, colorful snack, only better. You’ll love that they love it!
