In college, I studied to be a Dietitian. I love food. I love the science behind food. I love nutrition. (I know by my plethora of desserts, you might find that hard to believe :) ) But really, I love nutrition and I love to cook. My good friend from the program is doing her masters and I volunteered to participate in a study she is doing about toddler nutrition. We all have picky eaters, kids that go through spells of not wanting to eat much, or go through difficult times when introducing our children to new foods. This recipe is one that she sent me and my daughter loved it! This recipe got her to chow down on some fruit while getting some protein from the peanut butter. We dipped our favorite fruits in it (bananas and apples) and she gobbled it up! We loved this! Thanks kels, for such an awesome recipe!
Note, you can easily sub out some greek yogurt and omit the sugar or replace it with some other sweetener to make it healthier. I like the recipe as is, but it can be adapted to your preferences. Also, this recipe makes A TON, so adapt and change as necessary.
