Lucky Charms Yogurt Parfait Recipe

I partnered with General Mills Cereal to create a tasty Lucky Charms-inspired recipe to really brighten up your summertime picnic!

With my kids home for the summer, it’s pretty much guaranteed that they’re going to be hungry all of the time.

Our summer schedules are jam-packed with trips to the pool, outdoor games, camp, family road trips and neighborhood potlucks so having a quick, go-to snack on hand is a total must.

Summertime always makes me think of bright, fun colors. Putting together these simple Lucky Charms Yogurt Parfaits is such a treat for Charlie because I give him the job of picking out all of the marshmallows from the Lucky Charms cereal. I think it’s because he always sneaks a marshmallow or two in the process. Who wouldn’t?

I also don’t mind a sneak or two while he’s helping because General Mills Cereals keep me happy as a mom who is conscious of the nutritional value for my kids. All General Mills Big G Cereals like Honey Nut Cheerios and Cinnamon Toast Crunch start with whole grain as the first ingredient.
