Hayden likes yogurt – a lot. And being that I think yogurt is relatively good for you, I indulge him in his yogurt proclivity.
However, yogurt can be messy and I don’t do messy. I try to keep things as clean as possible (I realize this isn't necessarily a good thing, but it is what it is).
As soon as Hayden developed this love for yogurt, I found 'Yoplait’s Thick & Creamy Yogurt'. This stuff is great for neat-freaks like me! It is so thick that it doesn't run off the spoon. It stays on the spoon until it reaches Hayden’s mouth (and that is a great thing in my book).
A quirky thing about Hayden and his love for yogurt is the flavors he prefers. He doesn't do ‘Strawberry’ or ‘Strawberry-Banana’ or even ‘Mixed Fruit’. No, my son’s favorite flavors are ‘Key Lime Pie’, ‘Orange Crème’, and ‘Lemon Meringue’.
And his most favorite flavor is -‘Cherry Cobbler’. He loves it.During one memorable trip to our local Walmart, they were out of his beloved ‘Cherry Cobbler’ yogurt. Hayden started to cry. I kid you not. It was so sad.
Fortunately he got over it quickly – and we were able to resume our grocery shopping tear-free.
Note: The yogurt we get is the ‘Light’ variety only because the flavors he likes are only available in the ‘Light’ type – not because we are counting the amount of calories Hayden consumes.
