UltimateMama never mentions the word "dessert" to her children.  Dessert is not a food group.  Dessert is not mandatory for survival.  UltimateMama tries to limit processed sugars in her household.  But, do not fret!  UltimateMama gives you plenty of ideas for special snacks or treats that will satisfy your little ones: 

– Fruit (berries are great – blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries as is melon – watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe).  There are so many great fruits to expose your child to on a daily basis.  You can even cut up fruit and make funny faces with it on plates that are presented to your little ones. 

– Parfaits – such an easy snack and nutritious.  Just take plain yogurt, put some granola or cereal on top and add berries and you have a beautiful and health treat.

– Dried fruit.

– Homemade muffins.

– Pita and hummus or baba ghannouj.
