This is my new go-to breakfast lately. My kids and husband really enjoy it as well. I prepare a few at night, then in the morning we all can grab one and take with us or sit and relax while enjoying this hearty yet light breakfast. It’s got all you need for a strong, healthy start to your day. The yogurt gives a great boost of protein while the oats and fruits give you healthy carbs and energy. Add in things you know your family will like. Sometimes I add granola in the morning so it stays crunchy. Also, dried fruit is tasty and gives a nice chew. We even enjoy this for lunch some days when in a rush or for a healthy, nutritious snack. See and taste for yourself.
