Between working full time, writing and promoting for two blogs, finding time to travel and maintain a social life, I’m a person that is ALWAYS on the go. This is not a new thing for me either. Much of my college life was being in school or working at my 2 or 3 part time jobs. Even if I had breakfast or lunch earlier in the day, there were occasions when I needed a quick snack. My all time go-to were Kellogg’s Pop Tarts. They come two in a pack, but one was always sufficient to keep me awake during those long classes.

Fast forward five years later and I am still a busy bee, but more conscious about what (and how much) I eat. I sometimes leave Special K or Nutri-Grain bars that I purchase from my local Target at my work desk. The calorie counts are pretty low (between 90 and 120 calories depending on the bars purchased), they’re filling and taste good.

A quick and easy on-the-go snack is an Apple Jacks parfait. I found this recipe online and slightly modified it. It can be a good snack for family road trips or an after school snack for the kids. The Apple Jacks parfait is a good mixture of fiber, whole grains, fruit, and dairy.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Servings: 2


  • 1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cups Kellogg’s® Apple Jacks® cereal
  • unsweetened applesauce
  • raisins

Apple Jacks Parfait ingredients


  1. In two parfait glasses or clear glasses, layer the yogurt, Kellogg’s Apple Jacks cereal, applesauce, and raisins.
  2. Repeat layers until glass is full

Serve immediately

You can opt to add and remove any of the ingredients you want. It’s totally up to you. Here’s a look of my finished Apple Jacks parfait. Be sure to check out Kellogg’s Back to School Packaging and great on-pack offers in store at Target!

    I read this and laughed because my son said “Ewww nobody would eat that mommy.” I think it would be good without the apple sauce though. Those part tarts do come in handy when you need a pick me up.

      I tried Mott’s apple sauce the first time and it was TOO sweet. It does taste good without the apple sauce too. Thanks for stopping by.
