A Quick Yogurt Snack for Baby

Mikey's nanny made this yogurt mix and I was impressed. I couldn't shovel it into his mouth fast enough. If I paused for a moment he would talk with that angry tone and point at the spoon. When the cup was scraped clean, he took it in both hands and put his eye straight into the cup to make sure that I wasn't lying to him. I finally taught him how to drink it. Now he picks it up and drinks it like a thick smoothie. Here's the recipe (approximately):

1 cup whole milk yogurt (I use Strauss)
2 tablespoons apple sauce
1 teaspoon wheat germ
Dash of honey.

About wheat germ from whfoods:

The germ is the vitamin and mineral rich embryo of the wheat kernel that is removed during the refining of whole wheat grains to white flour. Packed with important B vitamins, such as folate, thiamin, and vitamin B6, and the minerals zinc, magnesium, and manganese, wheat germ is a top-notch food that can be easily incorporated into casseroles, muffins, and pancakes or sprinkled over cereal or yogurt.
