3 August 2021

This quick and simple recipe is a great way to start the day, or to have as a healthy snack that delivers plenty of essential nutrients.

Nutritional highlights

The Greek yogurt brings a load of protein, which can help us stay fuller for longer so we snack less, and keeps our muscles strong. Greek yogurt also supports our bones and teeth due to its calcium content. Ensuring we have enough calcium means our blood can clot normally and helps prevent osteoporosis later in life. All the berries in this recipe provide us with antioxidants. These can help reduce oxidative damage to our cells, which could lead to cancer.
