Letting Kids Help With Meal Prep
Another awesome thing about this recipe is that kids can easily help with it! I have no shame in my mommin’ game of letting kids “help” with tasks in the kitchen. For one, it’s super helpful for me! It also is a great activity to pass the time. Especially during the pandemic, it feels like the days can stretch on and on. Letting kids help get snacks and meals ready is a great way to keep them occupied. They also feel so proud to accomplish even the smallest of tasks. This could help set them up for success as they grow in being able to help with more substantial things in the kitchen.
Finally, I feel like when my kids help make something, they are way more likely to actually eat it! That includes putting greens in eggs or smoothies, arranging fruits and veggies for salads, and more. Most kids won’t complain about yogurt parfaits, but you never know ;).

Here’s the easy step-by-step for the recipe.
Step one. Gather your ingredients and some jars or bowls with lids. I like half-pint Mason jars (you can also find them at Walmart for less than $10/dozen.) Pyrex bowls are also great.
You’ll also need:
- Yogurt (any kind-any fat, non-dairy, plain or vanilla)
- Fruit (we especially love berries for this–we used strawberries and blueberries)
- Granola (again, any kind that will pair well with your fruit will do–we used an oats and honey variety.)
1.) Scoop about 1/4 cup of yogurt into bottom of the jar.
2.) Layer on strawberries.
3.) Add another 1/4 cup of yogurt.
4.) Layer on blueberries.
5.) Sprinkle 1/4 cup of granola on top.
6.) Cover with a lid and refrigerate.
Common Questions About Meal Prep Yogurt
Does the granola get soggy?
Kinda. Not quite soggy, but it doesn’t quite hold the super crunchy texture. If this bothers you, simply add the granola in the day you choose to eat it.
How long does it last?
Technically, it should be good through Friday if you prep on Sunday. It really depends on the ingredients you use. Some yogurt will be more watery than others.
