Chia has been touted for years as a “superfood, meant to help with everything from heart health and protein to stronger teeth and bones. And since the tiny seeds are so innocuous, I’m able to sneak them into so many things I’m already eating, like homemade bread, smoothies, and oatmeal.
The best part is that the tiny seeds have gone virtually unnoticed by my children, which is wonderful for sneaking some serious health benefits into their extremely picky diets.
I was afraid the new Stonyfield Greek and Chia Yogurt would be a bit risky – even though my children are serious yogurt fiends, would the seeds freak them out?
But instead of letting my children be the only judges, I had the opportunity to try a true challenge – their four-year-old friend who has recently been insisting on eating nothing but a yogurt that comes with built-in Oreo crumbles. Her mother was at her wit’s end, but this “cookie yogurt” had pretty much become the only thing she would eat without a serious fight.
So we were shocked when she LOVED the Blood Orange Chia Yogurt. And soon the three of them were fighting over yogurts and spoons.
Each Stonyfield Organic Greek and Chia offers 500mg of Omega-3s and 12 grams of protein in each cup. The product is available at Whole Foods Markets nationwide in flavors like Blood Orange, Blueberry and Strawberry Raspberry Cranberry.
