This cute parfait makes a perfect healthy snack for little ones. It also comes together fairly quickly, which is always a bonus for busy parents. With just a few simple ingredients, you can whip one of these up for your kiddos in no time!

What you’ll need:

  • Clear cup or glass
  • Granola
  • Berries—I used sliced strawberries and blueberries
  • Yogurt
  • Red jam in a squeeze bottle


1. Fill your clear cup 1/3 of the way with granola.

2. Next, fill your cup another 1/3 with berries.

3. Next, fill your cup the rest of the way with yogurt.

4. On the top, place 2 blueberries for eyes, and squeeze some jam for a smile and cheeks!

Here’s another angle, so you can see what the finished snack looks like with layers. This is a wonderfully healthy snack for kids. Your wee ones will love how cute and tasty it is, and you’ll love how easy it is to make. Enjoy!
