Peanut Butter and Fruit Parfait | Great School Lunch or After-School Snack


My two elementary aged girls pack their own lunches 4 days a week for school, and the other day they buy. Since I started packing their lunches, with some of these great and easy preschool and toddler lunches), they have been pretty creative with their own lunch packing (see more great lunch ideas and grab a morning routine printable).

I think they are even more creative than I am these days. My 7 year old has really taken a liking to parfaits after having them out at a certain chicken restaurant.

I’m a Stonyfield YoGetter and receive coupons and compensation for my posts. All thoughts are my own.

She decided that she wanted to take them in her lunch every day. BUT…she can’t have them remade at home because “mom, the granola gets all mushy.” So, she uses her PackIt lunch container to keep everything nice and cold (seriously, where was this when I was packing lunches for school. You just pop it in the freezer overnight and the lunch stays cold without extra ice packs)

She grabs a Stonyfield YoKids organic yogurt and then puts her granola and fresh or frozen berries into their own separate containers. Recently, we received some Justin’s single serve peanut butter pouches that she’s been taking and adding to her parfait. Since, I don’t go to lunch with her (well, I haven’t been yet,) I had her recreate it for me at home. But, she said “I’m too shy to be eating on camera today, mom, I need some privacy”, so her hands are all she’d let me have.

Basically, she puts the yogurt into a bigger container, then spreads the peanut butter over the top of it, sprinkles on granola and adds the berries. Word on the street is that it’s pretty good. It’s like a peanut butter and jelly parfait with less sugar and more protein.

  1. Although we can’t do the peanut butter because the boy is allergic, I’d like to introduce him to granola on his yogurt.
    This way he’s getting added protein.

  2. I love that parfait! I never thought to add peanut butter to fruit and yogurt, that’s such a great idea.
