My daughter never took to drinking milk. Unless it is in her cereal she won't even try it. However, she is a huge fan of yogurt and cheese so supplementing her dairy/calcium has been pretty easy. I'm also really into yogurt - specifically the thick Greek varieties. What I love about yogurt is that it is a healthy and protein-packed snack that can be dressed up and layered with granola, nuts or fruit or enjoyed as a simple and quick breakfast. My daughter and I recently had the opportunity to try out a new yogurt called Chobani Champions, a creamy, Greek yogurt just for kids.
To introduce the product, Chobani invited a group of bloggers to Taste Buds, a fun cooking school for kids in NYC to both test out and cook with the new yogurt. I absolutely love our time cooking together so I knew this concept would be a hit with my daughter. The friendly team at Taste Buds also made the experience memorable as they put the kids right to work and had them creating a delicious pound cake using the Chobani Champions Orange Vanilla yogurt. All of the ingredients were laid out for the children and the teacher went through what they all were as they placed them in a bowl. I loved watching my daughter mix and mash her pound cake as she learned how to crack an egg. As the cakes were cooking, the children then made a delicious parfait with the Chobani Champions Vanilla Chocolate Chunk yogurt. While tasting the yogurt the children also learned how to cut up strawberries (using a dull knife) and layering their parfaits with granola, bananas and the yogurt. This delicious snack really complemented with smooth and creamy yogurt that also contained real chocolate.
In addition to the Orange Vanilla and Vanilla Chocolate Chunk flavors, Chobani Champions has Honey-Nana (a banana and honey yogurt) and Verry Berry flavored yogurts. All of the yogurts are made from raw milk from local farms that also includes real fruit. There are no synthetic growth hormones, preservatives or artificial sweeteners in any of the yogurts. They are also a healthy and nutritious snack with 8 grams of protein, 20% of the daily value for vitamin D and contain live and active cultures that are beneficial for digestion as well as to strengthen immunity.
A morning of cooking and eating, we were both fans of this yogurt and its delicious taste. I also loved learning how to incorporate yogurt into some tasty and quick snacks as well as learning about this fun new yogurt for kids.
