Homemade Yogurt Bites and Apple Sauce Drops

My 18 month old is obsessed with yogurt bites. Have you seen those in the baby section at stores? Unfortunately, the bags are small and typically cost a minimum of $1.99 each! I also was concerned about their natural nutritional value considering that they really are a processed food of sorts. One day I saw something on Pinterest that made me think of another option. Why not make my own!?drops

To make yogurt bites or apple sauce drops simply snip a tiny corner off of a Ziploc bag. I did find that Ziploc works far better than fold top, though maybe you would be less messy than I am! Spoon a few tablespoons of yogurt or apple sauce or baby food into the bag, seal it and gently squeeze it toward your corner. Then dollop away!

For freezer space, I found that using a toaster oven tray lined with wax paper or parchment paper worked best. You could experiment around and see what works for you!

    Once you have your tray filled with cute little dots, simply place it in the freezer. Since the drops are so small, it really only needs an hour—perfect for a post nap snack! My daughter LOVES the fact that they are frozen and cool in her mouth. The one downside is that they do thaw quickly, so I only give her a small pile at a time and always on a plate. I just pop them off with a big spatula.We have done various flavors of yogurt, apple sauce and leftover fruit baby foods. My toddlers love that they are always different and it’s a fun way to eat fruit!
