Banana Split Parfaits

My children love snacks!  I mean these little kiddos can really eat!  Sometimes I look at them and think, “How much am I going to have to make when they are teenagers?!”  I don’t mind though, they are growing:)  It is important to me to make sure that they eat a good snack, but that it be pretty healthy too.

I had these big Banana Split parfaits waiting on the table for my children after school yesterday and they were beyond excited about this yummy snack!  These parfaits are very filling and are made with vanilla Greek yogurt, fresh strawberries, fresh pineapple, bananas, chopped walnuts, a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips and of course a cherry on top!  I used this as a snack, but these could easily be served for breakfast.  This recipe made 4 large parfaits in Pint sized Mason Jars .  While I assembled these parfaits, I think it would be fun to set up a “Sundae Bar” with yogurt and fun, healthy toppings on special day or even for a party.  What fun snacks do you like to make for your children?
