Yoplait Kids Snack Chat - Find tips on shopping for wholesome food with a toddler in tow! #YoplaitSnackChat
Shopping with a toddler can be tricky! I know my kids were fairly picky at that age and it was a struggle to talk them into things other than crackers and chips. Even now, I struggle to get my kids to eat their veggies. However, they love fruits. I find myself buying them the fruits that they love because I know that they will eat them. They also know not to ask me for anything other than a "healthy snack" after we've eaten dinner and they get the munchies an hour later.
Take a look at this video featuring Christine Coppa, who is known for her Mama's Boy blog over at Parenting.com. She talks about how she encourages her son to choose healthy snacks.
Here's another one on packing healthy snacks for their lunches! I like the idea of having things already portioned out.
There are other videos in the Yoplait Kids Snack Chat series if you're interested. The links below will take you straight to the video chats on YouTube.

Disclosure: Yoplait, via MyBlogSpark forwarded me links and other information so that I could make this blog post. In return for making this post sharing the video above, I will receive coupons. Speaking of coupons, did you know that you can print out a coupon good for 50 cents off a 4-pack of Yoplait Kids Yogurt by going here.
P.S. What did you think of the video? I really liked the idea of handing your child a basket and asking them to choose their favorites.
