UltimateMama, your sneaky chef, has a nice, quick trick for you regarding yogurt…let’s call it UltimateMama’s sneaky yogurt tip.

If your little one only likes flavored yogurt (vanilla, berries, pear, apple, peach, etc.) and you are concerned about the high sugar content there is a way to satisfy both of you.  Just take a small spoonful of the flavored yogurt and mix it with plain yogurt and your little one may not even notice the difference. For added pizazz sprinkle a little cinnamon on top!

Easy meals for kids – that is the goal!  UltimateMama always likes to add more nutrients to her children's meals. What better way to do just than than to add healthy foods to your recipes.  Sound hard?  Not at all. 

Below are a few of UltimateMama's sneaky foods for kids or food that dissolves as it cooks. Try a few of these "tricks" from the sneaky chef UltimateMama:

– Zucchini:  Finely dice a zucchini and put it into your marinara or spaghetti sauce.  It will not take long before it disappears!  (yellow squash does the trick as well)

– Fuji apples:  Peel, core, and finely dice a fuji apple and put it into your tagine, stew, pasta sauce to add some extra nutrients.  (other apples may do the trick as well)
