Some routines are helpful, when it comes to feeding kids, and should be cultivated with enthusiasm. Taco Tuesdays! Make you own pizza Fridays! With or without the !! it’s fun to get into certain habits, and knowing what you’re going to have for certain meals takes the pressure of the person cooking. But some routines are just ruts hiding behind a fancier word. We have a few ruts (not quite bad habits, but juuuuust about) around here that I’m less than enthusiastic about.

For instance, I’ve somehow been convinced that crustless toast can be a reasonable breakfast more times in a week than I’d care to admit (except I just did). I think the crustless part was the result of someone having a wiggly tooth but as for the less-than-roundedness of this meal? I guess I’m just weak before I’ve had a coffee. The other rut we fall into, if I’m not on top of it, is crackers as snacks. My kids are both carb addicts and when they get home from school – starving – they always ask for a bowl of crackers. It’s not there’s anything wrong with crackers. But there’s not much that’s great about them either.

All of these dilemmas were solved this week when we tried something new. Have you seen Iögo‘s new large pouches at the grocery store? I’ll confess it took me a second to get my head around this new format, I’m so used to seeing yogurt in tubs. But they’re really cool and tuck into a full fridge so much better than tubs – they take up so little space! And because the packaging is flexible, you can really squeeze it in easily.

My kids were very intrigued by our new find and insisted on getting into it immediately. We made DIY yogurt parfaits after school one afternoon (and avoided the usual crackers). Esme topped hers with raspberries, while Julian put almost everything else on his (nuts, seeds, fruit, dried cranberries). They loved being able to squeeze the yogurt into the bowl themselves and I loved that it didn’t spill or leak all over the joint. I’m usually a bit reluctant to let them go into the fridge and help themselves to things that can be messy but with these pouches it’s really easy for them to get their own snack or breakfast started. We’ve made a few parfaits, some smoothies and the plain Greek yogurt has found its way into a butter chicken.

I also really liked knowing that the packaging is recyclable. You can find them at most national grocers at $5.99 for 875 g, it’s a great value.
