  1. I make my own yogurt and try adding this in as many thing as I can.

  2. I think you’ve got it pretty well-covered. We have a mango tree, so we love adding mango puree.

  3. We usually just go with berries or sliced bananas. But mashed bananas would be even better. or applesauce. YUM!

  4. I love adding berries and granola to my yogurt but am going to have to try some of these other things you’ve recommended. 😉

  5. Such a helpful post! My kids love yogurt, so having ideas of thing to put in it besides granola is very helpful.

    • I love taking something my kids already like, and adding new flavors to it! Such a great way to introduce new foods.

  6. Also, good add-ins for mom! Love the ideas.

  7. Great ideas! My kids are 4 and 6 and SO PICKY. My son only likes yogurt that doesn’t have anything in it- just flavoring. I guess it’s a texture thing. I wonder if he would like the mango puree that mamaguru suggested, though….

  8. I have never thought to add jam or jelly! That’s such a genius idea!
